Moroccan Cities and Towns
Rabat had been the imperial capital of Morocco in the 12th century but this title later went to Fez and Meknes.
During the Franco-Spanish Protectorate in the 20th century, The French made Rabat the administrative centre, and it bacame the capital when Morocco gained independance in 1956.
Although Rabat has its old quarter (medina) and markets (souks) these are not as facinating as those of Fez and Marrakech which have played a more important part in history.
Rabat is mainly a large modern city, with a population of 2 million, and wide tree lined streets with smart cafes.
