Rabat and Salé have kept their rich historical and cultural heritage, which is a testimony to previous dynasties and civilizations.

During the French Protectorate, Rabat became a real urban laboratory. A new city was created by a team of architects, city planners and landscape desi gners (Prost, Ecochard and Forestier) who laid the ground for the new town. This gave Rabat a genuine urban architecture and infrastructure with a vibrant city center complete with luscious green parks.
