The visit of the city of Agadir begins with a visit to the Kasbah of Agadir which was built in 1540 by King Mohammed Ech-Sheikh of the Saadian dynasty, in order to protect the city from Portuguese invasions. This fortress contained the oldest district of Agadir, made up of small alleys and cheerful residents. This Kasbah (Agadir Ouffala) totally destroyed after the earthquake of February 29, 1960. Currently the Kasbah is perched at the top of a hill testifying to the rest of the old district of Agadir, this area is restored by a long guard wall of memory first for the only entrance door is of origin where figure an inscription dating from 1746 “Fear God and honor your king”. Then by the testimony of the courage and the will of King Mohamed V and his people to build a new city: the current Agadir is rebuilt 2 km further south.
