The Blue City Of Morocco



Have you ever heard about this
fantastic blue city close to Rabat? While tracking down our trip to Morocco, my
colleague and I, found ourselves taking with a Moroccan lady  working together with us, in order to get some
more curiosity about her country that usually difficult to find on several
bestselling-travel guides.



Kasbah des Oudayas
One of the suggestions she
gave us was Kasbah Des Oudaias which was not in our trip plan but once in
Rabat, of course we didn’t miss it!!! We parked our car at the huge parking
spot down the beach and walked towards the Kasbah.

At the entrance, we have
been approached by many local guides but we didn’t take one. It was impressive
seeing all the houses coloured only in White and blue in a coordinated way. As
well as the locals, also some foreigners had their holiday home there: they
should have been really very rich because we heard the houses price rocket in
Kasbah. The main Street, Rue Jamaa, run straight through the Kasbah to the Platform
from where we could admire scenic views over the river and the ocean. As locals
have their residences in Kasbah, while walking down the streets, we could also see
the daily routinary life going on and that was really fascinating.

The town was well organized
for tourists with souvenir shops, book shops, coffee shops where having a great
mint tea and  benches along the streets where
sitting and relax. Kasbah definitively was a must!!!  The main Platform
closes at six pm so you better go before sunset. This has been my third
favourite of my trip in Morocco as it provided a unique atmosphere of
peacefulness and beautiful sceneries.
