As your driver-guide will explain, the tower was intended to be the largest in the world, but construction stopped after the death of Sultan Yacoub al-Mansour, leaving the mosque incomplete.

As you’ll discover, this building is considered a masterpiece of modern Alaouite dynasty architecture, with its white silhouette topped by a typical green tiled roof.

After lunch (own expense) continue to the Bouregrag River, where you’ll stop to visit the Kasbah of the Udayas, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed kasbah (Islamic fortress) built during the reign of the Almohads.

Finally, visit the Old Medina of Rabat, an old walled section of the city filled with maze-like streets dotted with fountains, palaces, mosques, and markets. Here, you’ll see the ramparts of the Mechouar, a heavily guarded royal palace surrounded by gardens.

At the end of your tour, hop back in the car, coach or minivan and relax on the coastal drive back to Casablanca. end of your Casablanca to Rabat Day Trip.
