Kasbah of Agadir: rehabilitation underway

In the same area adjacent to the old port of Agadir, other projects have already been launched, including the development of the Kasbah of Agadir and its surroundings in the context of cultural promotion, heritage and places of worship. Currently, the site, especially the eastern wall, has recovered its original white. This work is the result of the mobilization of a multidisciplinary team composed of archaeologists, historians, anthropologists, architects and engineers. In order to restore the façade of the eastern wall, it was necessary to reconstruct the walls as they were using local materials and ancestral techniques, on the basis of the lineaments verified by the archaeologists according to their condition in 1960. The excavations conducted as part of this rehabilitation of the kasbah of Agadir and its surroundings have uncovered the main entrance of the kasbah, as well as the remains of the wall dating from the Saadian dynasty, a “mihrab” of the local mosque, part of the facilities for ablutions of the same place of worship and a large millstone, also dating from the XVI century. The project will also be marked by the development and lighting of the national emblem planned from this year 2021.
