Within Rabat, the capital of Morocco, are the remains of an ancient city called Chellah. Originally Phoenician and Carthaginian, then Roman, then Muslim, the ruins are fairly well-preserved. Eventually, the site became a cemetery, or necropolis, as the Muslims favored nearby Salé.

The site also contains a lovely botanical garden and has become a favored site for local storks to make their nests.

Below are some images from my visit with my friend and fellow PCV, Emilio.

    Challah looks like a major site. Great pix.
