Wonderful bit of local history and educational event. I had the chance to drive up to the top. I was amazed on how well the people maintain the Kasbah. Also thinking of the earthquake that destroyed the area. The environment is still very interesting and the view is simple but emotionally moving.

Is what remains of old Agadir built in the seventeenth century and destroyed on that fatal day of 29 of February 1960. This was the second earthquake hat hit this area.

Windy road to the top but fantastic views when you get there. Camel rides, trinket vendors etc. but they leave you alone if you show no interest. Inside the walls there is nothing to see;

On recommendation from other holiday makers to visit the Kasbah, we took a taxi up to the Kasbah and our driver gave us brief history of the Kasbah and how an earthquake destroyed half of Agadir population. Other than some spectacular views of Agadir from the top, there is nothing special about the Kasbah.

The teenage girls in my party found this place rather intimidating "but worth the look". It is worth a walk around to see the variety of goods for sale and it only cost £3 on the taxi each way.

Little to see of the Kasbah - it is in ruins. But the view and photo opportunities of the city are excellent.

Take an orange taxi up to the Kasbah (it cost us 100 dirham for a round trip and this included the entry fee which the driver had to pay to park up there). The view from the Kasbah is worth it, but there is little else to see or do, unless you want a camel ride.
