Rabat, the capital of the Kingdom of Morocco, is located along the Atlantic ocean. The first settlement in Rabat, the Chellah, dates back to ancient Roman times. Rabat experienced mixed fortunes, even becoming the headquarter of pirates between the 17th and 19th centuries. In 1913 finally Rabat became the capital of Morocco, as the French relocated the capital from Fes. Rabat has a number of interesting sites, including the beautiful Mohammed V mausoleum, the Chellah archaeological site and the picturesque Kasbah des Oudaias quarter with its white and blue houses.
