The ancient settlement Schella is a true sight of antiquity. The buildings here were built back in the 2nd century. Nowadays only a fragment of the District Wall, Abu Hassan Tomb, the mausoleum, Sala Ruins and the minaret remained from the village. All these constructions are considered real treasures of architecture. Hassan Mosque built in the 12th century is known as the main religious attraction. This is a massive and beautiful construction, which project has never been completed. The largest park of the city is called the Andalusian gardens. The park was opened in 1915. Today you can see beautiful orange groves, cypresses and plane trees, as well as many exotic flowers and trees in this park. The terraces of the garden are decorated with fountains and statues. Walk to the remote part of the garden and you will reach Museum of Moroccan Arts.
Speaking of entertainments of Rabat, we simply cannot fail to mention the city's main markets and shopping squares. This is a real paradise for shoppers as you will never find such wide choice of handicrafts, souvenirs, carpets, jewelry and dishes in any other city of Morocco. Female travellers will fall in love with cosmetics and perfumes, which are produced from natural essential oils. Tea lovers will also find much interesting here as tea is considered the national drink of Morocco.
