Medina of Rabat

It is said that the soul of Rabat has always been hidden away in the medina. In the shelter of its walls, a covered market and various souks are organised by trade. With its three main streets, the medina is easy to discover for yourself. All along the narrow streets sprinkled with enclosed passages, countless artisans and retailers sell their wares from their stalls – not only at very reasonable prices, but with warmth and pride.

Alongside these very lively retail streets run little alleys in which you can admire the range of ochres, pinks, turquoises and blue-greens that brighten up the whitewashed walls. Residences can be identified by their magnificent dark wooden doors, decorated with studs and sculpted knockers.
