Agadir Kasbah, Agadir

2.5
#3 of 16 in Historic Sites in Souss-Massa-Draa Region
Head up the hill to Agadir Kasbah, the ruins of an old district that used to house 300 people behind its historic fortress walls. Constructed under the command of Abdallah al-Ghalib in 1572, the kasbah sustained major damage in a 1960 earthquake. Today, many of the old homes and gates lie in ruins, with only the ramparts still standing. Still, the vantage point makes the visit worthwhile: climb up the walls to gain extensive views of the bay and fishing port, and look across the water to the hill that bears the Arabic inscription, "God, Country, King." A visit to Agadir Kasbah represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Agadir online attractions planner to plot your vacation.
