Chellah : Michelin's recommendations
Chellah, an abandoned Roman city, was transformed in the 13C into a royal cemetery by the Marinides. The ruins of Sala Colonia take the place of honour, exhumed during excavations undertaken in the 20C which revealed the remains of a fountain, a triumpal arch and the Decumanus Maximus. In the necropolis in the Muslim section you can see the tomb of sultan Abou el Hassan and that of his wife, the " lady of Chellah". Treasures are scattered around the lush garden on the site, surrounded by a wall with an elegant gate.
