Stepping out of the bus there is urine smell and a half dead dromedar. Wouldn't mind but the keepers are a little unrelieble looking as well. Be prepare they want 10 dirhams if you take a picture. Great view though, well worth all that!

We negotiated a return taxi fare from the centre of Agadir €15, which seemed reasonable enough considering the distance and Mrs M didn’t fancy the climb up! We didn’t expect to see much, but there are quite a few ruins. On arriving at the car park at the top we had our first experience of being accosted by the local... More

We took a taxi for few hours and were suggested a visit to the ruins. The driver explained the bits of history as we were going up and we even stopped to see where the center of the earthquake was. The views from up there are excellent and you can have a camel ride or pose for photos with snakes... More

Our visit here was not an enjoyable one. We were hassled every step of the way by people with camels, goats, snakes and rocks all wanting money. There was no information once inside and although there was a good view it was not particularly scenic and didn't merit any photographs. Disappointing and quite stressful with small children.

You must go up to Kasbah for a view of Agadir. late afternoon there are camels for those who want to ride. Be smart with prices as they may start at 250-300dh, We managed to get id down to 120dh for 2 camels.

We loved hiring a taxi to visit this spot on top of the now-Agadir. It was definitely worth the trip! I suggest you go during the late afternoon so you get the sunset lighting! Don't forget to ask your taxi to wait 15ish minutes so you can take photos and take in the view before he takes you back down.... More

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. Agadir or what was in its place some 300 years ago was also hit by the earthquake also known as the Lisbon earthquake. Perched on top of the 365... More
