Highlights overview if our 6 days tour from Rabat:
Rabat was constructed in the 12th century as a rib (fortified monastery) by Abd al-Mumin, the first Almohad monarch, to lodge the warriors for his jihad (holy war) in Spain. He eventually abandoned his attempts in Spain in order to focus on the conquest of North Africa.
The location was dubbed Rib al-Fat (“Camp of Conquest”) by the third Almohad sultan, Ab Ysuf Yaqb al-Manr, from whence the current city gets its name. He also started building of a large mosque, of which the remarkable Tower of Hassn, its half-completed tower, still stands, and created the massive defensive wall inside which the contemporary town has formed. After 1609, the consolidated municipality of Rabat-Salé became home to a significant number of expelled Andalusian Moors, as well as the fearsome Sallee Rovers, the most feared of the Barbary pirates (also known as corsairs). Rabat was appointed the administrative capital by the French, and after Morocco gained independence, it was recognized as an urban prefecture, along with Salé; it presently covers 492 square miles (1,275 square km).
