Kasbah of the Udayas

It is an enclosure built in ocher-red carved stone, constructed in the 12 century by the Almohads. Formerly it was called "Mehdiya" and it was a sort of fortified convent, where religious soldiers departed to fight in the Holy War against the Christians of Spain. Later with the arrival of the Andalusians in the 17th century it was named "Kasbah Andaluse" until 1883 when the Arabs named it "Kasbah des Oudayas", the name by which he is known today. It is situated north of Rabat on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and the mouth of the river Bou Regreg. It's like another city in Rabat, with narrow cobbled streets, the houses have few windows and walls are very wide.

Fort that is one of the most lovely of Rabat

The fort of the Oudayas is one of the most lovely of Rabat. It is being refurbished on the to make it even nicer. It is a tiny neighborhood constructed by the Almoravids, and was a Rabida, a place where religious Muslims lived. At night it is very bright and lovely. The place was abandoned with the advent of Al Andalus, but in the 18th century it was renovated and people started to live inside. Entrance is free, but there are many guys who try to act as a guide and follow you making you do things. On the inside, there is white and blue, in contrast to the rest of Rabta, not like you're in the capital.
