3 reviews of Salé

A city of fisherman

Salé is a quiet village that is next to Rabat, just across a river coming from the capital, and from the Hassan II Mausoleum it should not take more than 30minutes. Salé is a city of fishermen. At first it was more important than Rabat, but the French during colonization decided to make Rabat the capital of the country, which was equal to Saleh, a small village. The city has an interesting medina in the old town which is well preserved with low houses and covered souks. To get there one can take a train from Casablanca, and if you have to be in Rabat, the accommodation options are a little better in Sale, at least as far as backpackers are concerned.
