    Kasbah Agadir

    by RoyJava Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Visit the ancient Kasbah on the summit of Cap Ghir. It is the only historic site in town and tourists get here if only to see the fine views back across the new modern city.

    Some history: Agadir's most beautiful site is "Citadel", looking down on the ocean. In town you'll have an ideal spot to admire sun setting over the bay from a height of 236 m. Mohammed Ech-Cheikh, founder of the Saadian Dynasty, built this place. The gate, included a few partially sections of the ramparts, got prepared after the earthquake of 1960.

    If you thought this is the market Kasbah, you better explore at the stalls of the Souq al-Had.

    TIZNIT & Treasured Silver

    by RoyJava Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We went for an after breakfast travel 100 km to Tiznit, a fine crenelated walled of pink ochre city. It was created by Sultan Moulay Hassan (somewhere in the middle of the 19th century) to and established a reputation by settling Jewish "silver artisans" within the walls of the city. Fascinating visit!

    TAFRAOUTE Up In The Mountains

    by RoyJava Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We drove from Tiznit up in the mountains to Tafraoute, a beautiful, and amazing trip to see the upmost spectacularly contrast of the country in Morocco. The barren Anti-Atlas Mountain slopes next to green oasis create bizarre views around Tafraoute you won't forget that easy. Meet the many autochton people here living up in these mountains. Find your way to the many small villages.

    Bird Park

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Valee des oiseaux. A good few hours if you have kids, take them to the cheap bird park where there are not only birds but loads of other smelly animals too, and young moroccan couples hiding in the bushes!

    Lycee "Paul Gauguin"

    by desert_princess Updated Apr 26, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Agadir......My most vivid memories are from there.....I remember going to French lycee"Paul Gauguin" having classmates from Ethiopia, Norway,Poland, Belgium,France of course,and Morocco. I used to be "tres forte" /very good in french spelling, the teacher Mr. Bousquel always giving me as an example....I skipped a class,which was unthinkable even for french kids. Was difficult at the beginning, all the techers were trying to make me fail by not wanting to collaborate or help,especially the english teacher, but I didn't gave up.....after a month or so I was even beating most of my classmates on french spelling.....

    Agadir Beach

    by orlikins Written Dec 14, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our hotel was right by the beach, so of course we made the most of it.

    Lovely warm sea and waves and to your right, you had a great view of the Casbah.

    The only problem I had was that as soon as you leave the hotel, you've got traders trying to sell you useless tat and some of them can be a bit on the pushy side... I can understand they've got to make a living but there is a fine line in sales between pushing for the sale and pushing the customer away!

    Enjoy the pics :)

    Camel Trekking

    by orlikins Updated Dec 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    OOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was still sore from the camel trekking 4 days after I got home, but it was totally worth it. If you do it this way, you will be picked up at the hotel and you don't have to worry about driving or getting lost. (It is about 15 mins drive from Agadir town)

    I booked an excursion through the hotel to go camel trekking, it was around €20 for a three-hour trek to the Souss River, where you could see the pink flamingos.

    Gettting on and off the camel was the scariest part for me, but actually riding it was fine and very easy to do.

    The route takes through an eucalyptus forest, along the walls of an old fortress,with a great view of the High Atlas Mountains.

    TAROUDANT

    by RoyJava Updated Jul 16, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Take an excursion to Taroudant. It's isolated from tourist's path, still is an important caravan centre with many Touareg influences. The place is named "Grandmother of Marrakech" and has 2 souks/markets: an Arab one (famous for its jewelry and African limestone sculptures), and a Berber one (a lot of fresh vegetables and exotic spices).

    Streets of Taroudant are narrow, and driving a car here is a bit exhausting. But for walks, Taroudannt is great! So just park the car ...

    Taken somewhere in the 80ties by me - this washed out photo of mom and dad with the Kasbah hill at the background at the port of Agadir.
    I must say even then I had talent for photos ;))
