Cruise Diary: Rabat and Casablanca

Cruise Diary: Rabat and Casablanca

Yvon and Cees Kloppenburg are currently on a back-to-back western Mediterranean cruise on board Ryndam. They will be chronicling their cruising experience for us on the blog.

Continuing our shore excursion, the Imperial City of Rabat, we visited Mausoleum of Mohammed V, a fortified cemetery built in the 14th century where former kings of Morocco are buried.

The outside square where the mosque once stood until an earthquake tore it down.  It was never built again, only the tower stands. The pillars are new, imported from Italy, remarking where the originals stood.
