The basics

There’s no charge to visit the Agadir Kasbah Ruins (Agadir Oufella), which is one of the most popular attractions in and around Agadir, for travelers and locals alike. Most all Agadir city tours include a stop at its mighty earthen walls, alongside other city signatures such as Souk El Had d’Agadir, Marina d’Agadir, and the Seafront Promenade. Besides the views, there are a range of stalls and food and drink vendors. As the ruins are out of town, it’s worth booking private transport or a tour.

The Agadir Earthquake

For all its modern appearance, Agadir has a history dating back to at least the 15th century, when Portuguese merchants founded it as a base to trade in gold and slaves. But in February 1960, Morocco’s deadliest ever earthquake struck the city, reducing much of it to rubble and killing at least 12,000 people. The Kasbah was one of many sites to be rebuilt.
