Andalusian Wall of Rabat

Andalusian wall of Rabat is a historical wall located in the southern part of the Moroccan city of Rabat and extends east to the bank of the Bou Regreg River. The wall was built in the 17th century AD by the Moors, the Muslims who were forced to leave Al-Andalus towards North Africa in the period between 1609 and 1614, after the end of the Islamic rule of Al-Andalus. The wall includes several gates and defensive towers, the most important of which is the Borj Sidi Makhlouf. The wall was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2012 as part of Rabat, Modern Capital and Historic City a Shared Heritage.
