For those who have travelled through Europe and learnt the history of most of the areas, you will continuously hear about one Empire, who took over everywhere. . . those damn Romans, and it really should of come to no shock when were visited Roman Ruins in the Capital City of Morocco, Rabat. 🇲🇦
The Chellah is a World Heritage listed site and not only houses Roman Ruins but also a medieval Muslim grave, as well as a mosque that was destroyed by the Lisbon earthquake in 1755 (not going to lie, my history nerd heightened when I heard about an earthquake I had studied and knew multiple bits of information about @ and I were those painful know it all’s for a moment!)
The Roman Ruin area was originally a Roman naval port on the Atlantic and it was also on one of the Roman Roads which basically this means that it was a massive town during it’s period under Roman Rule!
The complete site is now is home to a rather large sized flock of Storks! Which if you watch my Morocco highlights, you’ll find a bit of information about! 🐥
