Two Sides of Rabat

Rabat is the capital of Morocco and there's so much to see if you like visiting historical sites. When I first came to Rabat, I thought I could only see beautiful architectures as this should be the most prosperous city in Morocco (I guess). However, I saw something more than that. Basically, there are two different sides of Rabat and I would divide them into two different groups which are "kinda new" and "kinda old". Now, let's see which two spots I am referring to.

The site that best fits into the "kinda old" group is Chellah. This historical site is definitely worth a visit because the entry price is just nearly nothing! And you'd be able to see a lot of things that you didn't expect to see when you are in Rabat. That's probably the only ancient thing that I spent quite a lot of time on... I literally took lots of pictures with all these ruins because they are just so perfect for cameras!

Comparing to what I found in the above, I guess Mausoleum of Mohammed V is definitely something "kinda new", right? This spot wouldn't take you much time because there are only tombs of the Moroccan king and his two sons inside. The architecture is amazing, especially the interior is spectacular, it just looks like a dark clear sky with lots of stars. What do you think?

If you could only visit one spot in Rabat, where would that be?
