Chellah

Chellah (Sala Colonia – near Rabat) – located south of Rabat, this is an ancient necropolis at the heart of the old Roman city of Sala Colonia (when the country was then known as “Mauretania Tingitana”). The Chellah is one of the most magical sights in Morocco. Perhaps the most important tomb here belongs to el Hassan, a legendary Merenid ruler and empire builder known to history as the Black Sultan. There’s also a still-standing minaret which is now home to a family of storks. Admission: 70 Dhm. per person.
