This is a Roman ruin site dating back to the 2nd century B.C. Fairly well preserved was the market, necropolis, forum, toilets and mosque. It was surrounded by beautiful gardens with plants from all over - Mexico, South Africa and native Spain. There were huge nests atop every high point where storks had made their homes. We saw some of the 240 storks that live in the area.
Just beware of guides approaching you after you pay your entrance fee (10dh each). While this gentleman was very knowledgeable, we didn't realize that he wasn't officially working for the Chellah. The way he approached us we thought he was a guide that worked there. When we finished our walk and talk, he wanted to charge us 130dh which was a lot of money considering the entrance fee. We ended up paying him a smaller fee but wished he had been more upfront at the beginning.
Definitely worth seeing the sight. An excellent example of Roman ruins.
