Kasbah des Oudayas

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.

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.
