Explore the ruins of Chellah

Written by the wayfaress

Initially established as a Greek trading emporium, the ruins at Chella has been reborn several times over since then; first transformed into the Roman colony of “Sala Colonia”, which was then conquered by North African Muslims to be used a royal burial ground.

These intricate stone carvings and zellige ornamentation serve as the backdrop for an annual international jazz festival held in September, called Jazz au Chellah, featuring collaborative performances between European and Moroccan jazz musicians.

Our guide Mohammed, Salem the driver and Brahim our desert friend were very helpful and took care of everything to make this trip special. We had a great experience and great fun. Definitely one to remember!! I can assure you that Best Travel is the best in organizing these tours. Thank You from Chris, Sasha, Jonathan and Melanie from Malta :-)

I just came back from a 9 day tour with Best Travel Morocco, and I am so grateful for the experience. All accommodations were well thought out and planned.

Before adventuring to Morocco, I was concerned about safety, as we were three women traveling together. Signing up with Best Travel Morocco was the right choice for us -I felt safe the whole time, and we got to meet so many amazing Moroccans!

My friend and I did a 15 day tour across Morocco and totally enjoyed the cultural learning experience. Our two guides were very friendly, knowledgeable, gracious, and lots of fun. Highly recommend Best Travel Morocco if you are considering a trip to Morocco. You won't be disappointed!
