Visiting Agadir Kasbah

Standing at the summit of the mountain at 236 metres (774 feet) there are impressive views across the new City of Agadir, it’s three harbour and it’s lengthy beach, promenade and surrounding area. On the 29th February 1960, at 11.40 pm the old City was hit by an earthquake measuring 5.7 on the scale. Over 15,000 people lost their lives and 25 000 were injured. Over 90% of the Kasbah was destroyed and buildings raized, only the southern wall survived. Outside the old City walls have been tastefully and well rebuilt which enables visitors to walk around the walls and enjoy the views.
