117 km2
Elevation:
11 m
Overview

Rabat is situated on the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the Bou Regreg estuary, opposite Salé, northeast of Casablanca.
Rabat is Morocco’s political and administrative capital and the official residence of the King.
It is a city with a really long history: Yacoub El Mansour, the Almohad, erected his tents there in the 12th century.
Prior to independence, 1956, it was capital of the French protectorate of Morocco.
The Medina, the old part of the city, was built in the 17th century.
Today, Rabat is a modern city where one can find anything.
But the beautiful architecture and traditional treasures of the different populations that have lived in Rabat over the centuries remain as to be seen and admired.
