Mohammed V Avenue

It’s hard to make a visit to Rabat center and to avoid Mohammed V avenue. The avenue starts almost at Chellah ruins, passes by As-Sunna mosque, transforms into boulevard by Rabat-Ville train station and turns into pedestrian zone in medina.

It consists of 2 totally different parts – the one in medina and the other in Ville Nouvelle. The second one is a chapter in history of French protectorate times. There are fountains, interesting buildings and locals entertain their children with feeding pigeons at the boulevard.
