MEMORY OF AGADIR

In the southwest corner of the Olhão Garden, this museum is dedicated to the 1960 earthquake. It has interesting photos of Agadir since the 1920s, some of the earthquake. The entrance is outside the garden.

GARDEN OF OLHÃO

This pleasant garden was created in 1992 on the occasion of the twinning of Agadir with the Portuguese city of Olhão.

AMAZIGH HERITAGE MUSEUM

This museum has an excellent collection of Berber objects, including jewelry. It is an ideal place to discover the traditions and culture of the Berbers of the region.

THE BIRD VALLEY!

This oasis of greenery in the city center, with a shaded playground for children, an aviary and a zoo, occupies the dry bed of a river between boulevard Hassan II and boulevard du 20 Août.

CASBAH

On a hill 7 km northwest of the center and visible from most of the city, the kasbah is one of the few survivors of the 1960 earthquake. From there, the view of the port, the marina and Agadir is fabulous.
Built in 1541 and restored in the 1740s, the Kasbah housed some 300 inhabitants. Only the outer enclosure remains, and traces of houses can be discerned. The inscription in Dutch and Arabic above the front door (“Believe in God and respect the King”) dates from the beginnings of trade with the Netherlands.
The climb to the kasbah is long and tiring; take a taxi (about 25 Dh) and walk down again.

OLD TALBORJT!

The green area at the foot of the Kasbah covers the remains of ancient Agadir and is a common grave for victims of the earthquake of 1960.

MARINA

Recently added, this glitzy marina is located between the beach and the commercial port. In addition to moorings for floating palaces, the set of fake white casbahs offers apartments, shops (mainly international brands), cafes, restaurants and boat tours for groups.
