Mèknes – Rabat
Road to Rabat, now the administrative and political capital of the country, but which was also the second imperial city, after Fez, at the time of Yacoub el-Mansour, at the end of the 12th century. At the mouth of Bou Regreg on the south shore, she looks at Salé, her twin anchored on the north shore. Dominating the estuary, the Kasbah of the Oudaïas recalls the past of Rabat which became a republic of the Corsairs in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, a refuge for the Moresques expelled from Spain in 1609 by Philip III. We will then visit the Archaeological Museum which offers an excellent panorama of the history of Morocco, from prehistory to the Roman and early Christian period. Lunch included. Crossing the medina, we will reach the merinid necropolis of Chellah, which occupies the site of the ancient Roman city. We will arrive at the Hassan tower and the mausoleum of Mohammed V, which will give the opportunity to recall the recent history of Morocco. Transfer to your accommodation, dinner and overnight.
