Rabat Tailormade Holidays

About a million people live in the capital Rabat and its sister city Sale, but wandering around the Medina, the Kasbah or the Modern Town this is not the impression you get, as it doesn’t have a busy capital city feel to it.

Being the capital, it has the actual royal palace and the Kings' mausoleum. Inaugurated in 1967, the mausoleum first housed independent Morocco's first king, Muhammad 5 (who died 1961). Later, the second king, Hassan 2 and his brother, Moulay Abdallah have been buried here too. The mausoleum is built with the finest materials and with the best craftsmen of its time. Yet, fascinatingly enough, it is designed by a Vietnamese architect.

The main attraction, however, is the weird Hassan tower. Begun in the late 12th century, the Hassan tower was designed to be the minaret of what became the world's second largest mosque (second to the one in Samarra, Iraq). The Almohad ruler, Yaqub al-Mansur, designed the minaret to become 80 metres tall, with a unique design for each of its facades. When he died in 1199, somehow the whole building process came to a dramatic halt. The minaret was then 50 metres high, the same size as it has today. The mosque came into use, having its columns completed, and with cedar roof. The gigantic earthquake of 1755, which also destroyed central Lisbon, destroyed the structure to the condition that it now is in.

Almost mystical is the Chellah, which has interesting museums, a 17th-century fortress and Roman ruins.
