The Kasbah of the Udayas was built in the XIIth century during the reign of the Almohads. They also built the Al Atiq Mosque, the oldest one in Rabat, within its walls. The pleasure of walking through its narrow streets rests in the beautiful simplicity of the white and blue walls that decorate the Kasbah as well as its sculpted doors that show Andalusian or Portuguese influences (the red one above has Portuguese influences). These walls hide some gorgeous riads (traditional houses built around a garden or courtyard), some of them with gorgeous views on the Bou Regreg river and the city of Salé (The two first images after the jump show ancient military barracks turned into houses).
