Built on a magnificent bay of some 10 kilometres of fine sand, Agadir enjoys constant sunshine. In 1505 the Portuguese travelling to India built a fortress here which they called ‘’Santa Cruz du Cap de Gué’’. In 1541 the founder of Saadian dynasty, Mohamed Echeikh El Mehdi, conquered the fortress. His son Moulay Abdellah El Ahalib decided to build a fort on the hill overlooking the port, the (Kasbah), designed to protect the town against European attacks.

The Kasbah dominates the entire city. It was built by Sultan Moulay Abdellah In 1572 and became prosperous thanks to the exports of sugar plantation. Then a visit to the port to seethe fleet and building industry.

- After an Optional fish lunch discovery of MODERN AGADIR : Completely destroyed by an earthquake in 1960 and as a result many people died. The history of Agadir dates back to ancient times when the Phoenicians founded the trading settlement of Russadir in the ideal surrounding of the bay of Agadir.

The Portuguese later used the city as a base for their discovery along the African coast naming it Santa Cruz de Cap Gue. We end our visit with the Moroccan residential area where you will see carpet making, leather work, wood and brassware.
