Within a fifteen minute walk from the Rabat City Center stands the Casbah of the Oudayas at the Bou Regreg estuary, a real fortress dating back to the XII century. With its monumental Almohade portal, the Kasbah is a gripping site which offers the visitor a never seen before beauty that encompasses the Andalusian style garden, a museum, some riyads and some mosques. The Andalusian influence is omnipresent with the uniformly lime covered walls, the dominant blue colored doors and the wrought iron windows … Inscribed on the World Heritage list by UNESCO, the Kasbah of the Oudayas has become for a good number of both Moroccan and world artists a haven of peace and inspiration. Visitors are seduced by the site’s beauty, just as they are by its soothing calm. Doubtless, the Kasbah’s greatest attraction remains the famous Moorish Café which can be acceded to through the winding streets. The café is a place not to be missed where a mint tea can be enjoyed along with some tasty almond sweets. With the awesome ocean view it offers at the Bou Regreg estuary, the Casbah remains a highly recommended space for relaxation where rowing boats can be seen moving to and fro between the two river banks.
