Discover The Kasbah of the Udayas Morocco

The Kasbah of the Udayas stands overlooking the southern part of the mouth of the Bou Regreg River. Its blue and white walls make it incredibly unique. Its name comes from the Udaya tribe, whose mission was to guard the city. The Almohad sultans Abd al-Mu'min and Ya'qub al-Mansur instigated the construction of this fortress in the 12th century. Follow the kasbah's magnificent ramparts up to the Bab Oudaia Gate, which is today used as a small exhibition space. A stroll along Jemâa Street, which runs through the centre of the kasbah, enables visitors to discover the oldest mosque in Rabat (dating back to the 12th century) and to enjoy a stunning view of the sea from the Plateforme du Sémaphore. At the entrance to this 'platform' is a cooperative that produces rugs. This workshop is open to the public, and if you take a look inside you can actually watch the artisans at work.
