Kasbah of the Udayas (Casbah des Oudaïas) Tours and Activities

Kasbah of the Udayas (Casbah des Oudaïas)
On your visit to Rabat’s medina, take a few steps farther north to explore the 12th-century Kasbah of the Udayas (Casbah des Oudaïas or Kasbah les Oudaias), the city’s oldest quarter, which was built during the Almohad dynasty. The tightly packed neighborhood has evolved through the centuries, with many of its signature, whitewashed and blue-based houses built by Moroccan refugees from Spain during the 16th century. 

Today, there are many highlights to behold during a visit to Rabat’s wall- and tower-surrounded Kasbah. Entrance through the grand 12th-century Almohad gate of Bab Oudaia hints at the discoveries to come, including a walk down the neighborhood’s main street Rua Jamaa and past the city’s oldest mosque, El Atiqa; a visit to the palace-located Museum of Oudayas; and especially the unparalleled views of the river and sea (and inviting shoreline), best taken in from the various terraces.

Practical Info

Though the neighborhood can be explored guide-free, be advised that unofficial guides (especially located at the Bab Oudaia gate) may try to convince you otherwise. Therefore if you wish to explore the Kasbah with an expert, be sure to book a trusted guide in advance.
Address: off Rue des Consuls, Rabat, Rabat-Salé-Kenitra, Morocco
