In 1960, Agadir was exposed to a major earthquake and many of its old buildings were completely destroyed. The oldest building is the Kasbah of Agadir Oufella and even though large parts of the Kasbah were destroyed, it is a nice pitstop on the road from our Tamraght Surf Camp to Agadir. It offers a panoramic view of the city and the beach.
Explore Taghazout & Tamraght Village
There are no names on the streets of Taghazout and Tamraght so it’s easy to lose track but just as easy to find back, because nothing is more than 5 minutes walk in these villages. Even though the alleys are a bit worn out, the Blue little houses are incredibly charming and make your walk very interesting.
A pleasant way to really feel the true colour of Taroudant is to take a ride on a horse and in the carriage also called a Caleche. Taroudant is a fertile valley with the wrecks of Kasbah, which later has been transformed into a high top-notch restaurant. Its a nice tourist attraction with splendid view of Souss Valley and Upper Atlas. A pretty village Amagour awaits you which has Argan trees covering it.
