    Lixus

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just north of Larache is Lixus, and ancient site bearing some of the most important Carthaginian and Roman ruins in the country. They are slowly being excavated and less than half have been uncovered so far which include the ramparts, baths and sanctuaries. The site is thought to be where Hercules collected his apples. There is a bus you can catch or even a boat which will go to Lixus from Larache – across the Loukos estuary.

    Along Boulevard Mohammed V

    ALONG MOHAMMED V AVENUE, LARACHE

    Look at another building/palace I found in Cite Nouvelle (New City). My walk along Boulevard Mohammed V was a very good choice although it was a bit hot around midday. There are a lot of beautiful, old and renovated, well-kept buildings there. This area of Larache was the cleanest and looked safe and relaxing.

    The tallest minaret

    THE WHITE MOSQUE, LARACHE

    Another example of great architecture, Muslim that time, is the White Mosque at Mohammad V Avenue in Cite Nouvelle (New City). Notice unusual shape of the tallest minaret of Larache which is good orientation point. A typical North African minaret is square. It's a pity that all mosques are closed for non-muslims in Larache.

    Take a walk around the New City

    ALONG MOHAMMED V AVENUE

    When I finished to walk around the medina I decided to take an our walk around Cite Nouvelle (the New City). Look at my picture to see what I found walking Boulevard Mohammed V - the main street of Cite Nouvelle.

    There are a few beautiful, renovated, old buildings put along the street and built in unique style: a mixture of North African Muslim and Spanish architecture. They house various city offices nowadays. Well, I knew this mixed style from some Andalusian cities of southern Spain (Sevilla for example).
