The guide will present the historical relevance of this site, especially the role of the slave market. A first introduction to the Kasbahs . The gardens have some very interesting plants.

Based on some guidebooks this used to be an arts and crafts museum with various carpets, copperwork, musical instruments, astrolabes, etc, but by my visit in March 2013 it had been converted into a museum devoted primarily to jewelry, which was more interesting than it...More
