    Kasbah means fortress.THe kasbah is in the medina;other arab word meaning town.In fact medina is the old town in the arab towns.Zoco is the word for souk or street market.Socco is a bad spanish translation.
    My travel to Morocco was my second travel abroad.I went from Algeciras to Tangier and then to Tetouan and Ceuta by bus.I remember to odour in the zoco:a misture of spices and sweat.

    Kasbah fortification is on the top of the hill and you can find many local activities like beggars asking for money millions of people trying to sell you something and snake masters .
    Yes you are in Northern Africa..Local people explain that this is a unique place to see two continents at once .I didnt tell them that I am coming from Istanbul ..

    At the Kasbah Museum
    1 more image

    The Kasbah museum is located in a former Palace at Place de la Kasbah, the highest point of the city, at the northern end of the medina. The museum contains Moroccan arts with exhbitis such as traditional furniture, pottery and musical instruments.

    The palace building itself is far more interesting than anything it contains. It was built by Moulay Ismail in the 17th century and the exhibits are on show in its various apartments and salons.

    The entrance fee is 10 Dh, a standard charge for museums in Morocco.

    View Point at Kasbar Square

    The fortification area called now Kashbar is a quarter of winding streets, alleys, arcades.

    People there are very nice and willing to stop to chat, on the kashbar square you can go to the view point to the ocean and also lots of groups of tourists in day excursions watching the snakes dancing ;-)

    KASBAH  FORTIFICATIONS

    The main street of medina lead me to Kasbah (the "Place de la Kasbah") that is the old arab castle and the highest point in the medina. Luckily there were no more crowds but a few visitors busy taking pictures of the fortifications.

    The fortifications surprisigly are in very good condtion. The walls are simple, not-white but natural-earth-clay in colour and... not that much interesting. and they are put in very chaotic way. I guess, they had to be changed many times in the past.

    Kasbah Tangier

    The kasbah in Tangier is constructed on the highest point of the Medina and provides excellent views of the ocean and the city. Back when Tanger was an International Zone, the Kasbah was a fashionable address for all the expatriates and celebrities that called Tangier their home.

    Kasbah

    The fort, or kasbah, in Tangier has tall, imposing walls, and you can see how it could have proved quite a challenge to any prospective marauders.
