STUDY ARABIC IN RABAT MOROCCO

Rabat has muct to offer including the Archaeological Museum: with an exceptional collection of Roman bronzes dating from the first and second centuries and recovered from the site at Volubilis takes pride of place at Rabat's Archaeological Museum.

The massive minaret of the Hassan Mosque, dating from 1195, towers over Rabat, although the huge mosque itself was never entirely completed and was largely destroyed in an earthquake in 1755. The minaret is unusually sited at the centre of the mosque building, and was intended to be 262ft (80m) high, though it stands today at 164ft (50m).

Kasbah des Oudaļas an airy 'village within the city', the Kasbah is a pleasant place to take a stroll to admire some interesting architecture and see some sights. The Kasbah was the Alhomad citadel of medieval Rabat, and is guarded by an impressive arched gate built around 1195.

Inside the Kasbah is the palace and Andalucian gardens, as well as a broad terrace, which gives beautiful views of the river and sea close to the city's oldest mosque, the Kasbah Mosque, founded in 1050.

Rabat’s Medina, or old city, was created by Andalucian Muslim refugees from Badajoz in Spain, and was essentially all there was to the city until the arrival of the French in 1912 and the subsequent building of the Ville Nouvelle or new quarter. The Medina is small and not as interesting or attractive as the old city sections of Fez or Marrakech, however the foundouks (traditional cafes) and shops make for a lively atmosphere.

Palace Museum and Gardens in the Kasbah on the Rue Bazzo dates from the 17th century. Today the palace, a beautiful classic building, houses the Museum of Moroccan Arts featuring exhibits such as Berber jewellery, costumes and local carpets. The palace grounds contain the beautiful Andalucian Gardens with their sunken shrubberies and flowerbeds, bougainvillea and fragrant herbs.

The citadel of Chellah emerging from the boulevards of the Ville Nouvelle (New Town) of Rabat one comes across the ruins of Chellah, once the thriving walled Roman port city of Sala Colonia, abandoned in 1154 in favour of Sale across the other side of the river mouth.

The Costume Museum in Rabat tells the history of Morocco through the dress and traditional jewelry of the various regions of the kingdom.

Museum of Moroccan Arts housed between the walls of the former residence of Moulay Ismail, the custodians have tried to reconstruct all the accessories which make up the decoration of a typical Moroccan house. After this visit you may like to stop on a cafe esplanades in the Casbah and linger over a refreshing peppermint tea.

Natural Science Museum apart from the history of the earth's geological origins, the Natural Science Museum in Rabat also has an impressive sauropod dinosaur on display. The authentic skeleton was discovered in 1979 in the Azilal region of the High Atlas Mountains, where it lived 150million years ago.

Our Arabic language course also allows you plenty of time to discover the culture of RABAT MOROCCO.
