Located along the wetland and the Bouregreg, near the Royal Palace in Rabat are the remains of the necropolis of Chellah an ancient and complex medieval ruins. The necropolis of Chellah was built on top of the Roman site during the 13th Century by the Merinid Sultan Abu al Hassan. By the 18th century, an earthquake had destroyed or damaged many of the structures in Chellah. Today, the Chellah Ruins ruminates on the rise and fall of the ancient Roman Empire and offers visitors with an interesting history and a beautiful garden filled with ancient structures. In the spring time, the flowers inside the garden are blooming in various colors and fresh scents, there are nesting storks and egrets in the garden, which add to the allure of the Chellah Gardens.
