RABAT
Chellah: The garden


Rabat, Morocco

Rabat, Morocco


What appears to be just a lucious garden today is really the ground of ancient Rabt, or Bou Regreg as it was known. It was abandoned back in 1154 and was for some centuries used as a royal burial ground.
The garden today hides almost all of its past, but this s still a place that most certainly merits all the visits it gets by itself. The bushes and trees come in all colours and all around you there is a continuos noise of birds.
