This site is part of Moroccans history. When you see the place, you’d not think so. One can walk and sit on the tombs... they’re full of litter and the smell is awful. Strangely enough there is a nice lawn next to it that is...More

I felt sad about this site. The Phoenician tombs carved out of rock were full of litter. The surroundings smelled like open sewers. The best thing about the site was the view of the sea and the breeze, which mitigated the stench. To make it...More
