This is a charming city and a veritable jewel of Moroccan tourism. In Berber Agadir means “common fortified grain store”.

Built on a magnificent bay of some 10 kilometers of fine sand, Agadir enjoys constant sunshine. In 1505 the Portuguese traveling 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.
