KASBAH OF AGADIR OUFELLA
The Kasbah of Agadir Oufella is the most majestic site of the city. It is a fortress overlooking the city and the beach and is at a height of 236 meters.
The edifice was erected in 1540 by Mohammed Ech-Cheikh, a Moroccan Sultan belonging to the Saadian dynasty. After having conquered the city, he built these defences in order to protect from possible invasions, notably from the Portuguese.
The site was rebuilt in 1752 to increase the security of Agadir. After the earthquake of 1960, the fortifications were rebuilt in their old places and only the front door remained authentic.
During a visit, it is impossible to forget that this fortress contained the oldest district of Agadir, made up at the time of small alleys and carefree residents.
The place is ideal for admiring the city from all angles and seeing the sunsets.
