Wow! That sort of takes one's breath away...wonder what happened. I was in Rabat in 1957 and we visited an old fort, partially ruined, that looked something like this...

I wonder why the city is abandoned! Could it be for lack of sufficient water?

I find it so amazing that one could even come upon something like this. Do you have a history of this area? Interesting. MB
