Rabat and Salé condense more than two millenniums of History.

The first tracks of activity in the  region go back to more than 2500 years. At that time, the Phoenician and their Carthaginian descendants make a stopover in the  African northwest coast They settle down on the top of a hill overhanging the Bou Regreg estuary and establish counters there.

Two centuries later, they give in the place to the builders of the Roman Empire who constituate "Sala Colonia". This Roman colony,of  which only a part of vestiges was discovered to date, expanded from Chellah to the Atlantic Ocean. Thus, the pictorial arts, the language, the architecture or the literature testify of the profusion of the Berber, Arabic, Andalusian or European inheritances.
