Where once stood a huge Kasbah on the hills overlooking Agadir Beach, there is just the ruins and rubble of the building that was destroyed in an earthquake in 1969. It is considered a burial ground because many of those that perished were buried beneath the rubble. Very interesting bit of the history of Agadir.

Beautiful. Coming up here there is nothing and it is quite poignant and makes you realise what was wiped out durning the 1960s quake. Then you look down on what has risen from the ashes so to speak and it is miraculous. It really goes to show the kind of attitude and strength of character the local people have

The views were great from the top but there was a lot of graffiti up there and the sellers were a bit pushy and slightly spoilt the experience.

This is a place to visit, take a few pictures and leave again. There's nowhere else we've seen such a view, looking over the entire city. But the ruins where... Yeah... Ruins. Watch out for the guys trying to guide you, they want money for it. No need to pay though if you haven't asked for it.

Take a cab, 100-150 dirhams, to get you up, it will wait and take you down again. About 45 minutes in total The view is great, go in sundown, you will se all of Agadir and the Atlas Mountains. It's a bit touristy with some camels and donkeys to take pictures by ( for some dinars) But the view is... More

you can't go inside the building and there is a guy who charges to show you the earthquake crack, so be careful. You are charged to take photo of camel . The view from the top is nice if its a clear day.

We visited as part of a tour and then had some time to explore. The sights, sounds and smells are amazing and the variety is good. bartering is a must although its hard to know how far to push. I got a good deal on a painting but when I got back to the hotel it worked out I had... More

You get a good view of Agadir beach and port, but whats left of the Kasbah is just a wall, there is nothing else to see. But what you do get is constant pestering from people with decrepit camels, snakes and souvenirs, or offers to help you up a few steps, all for money of course. Pretty uncomfortable and couldn't...
