Visit Agadir in Morocco
On the sight of presidia Agadir, the Portuguese founded a merchant town by the name of Santa Cruz do Cabo de Gue in the early 1500. The Arabs also recognized this favorable location, so sultan attacked it in 1541. The city which went to the hands of the Arabs flourished for centuries fearing the comeback of the Portuguese, a Kasbah was built on that 233 meter high mountain rising above the port.
Sardine fishing meant to secure living for centuries. The warm water of the guild streams stretch in front of the coast of Agadir and shawls of fish followed the stream. This is how the biggest sardine port in the world developed. Unfortunately, some decades ago, the gulfs stream was diverted from its former root that’s the shells of fish rarified as well. In the port even today fish auctions are held. Primarily cold stores and fish processing factories bid on the bigger items. Those who long for real exoticism can go on a day long cruise on the Atlantic Ocean.
Excellent lunches made from the fish caught along the way. If they succeed in catching a shark, they will prepare that too. Agadir was not devastated by the earthquake in the 18th century but the one that occurred in February 1960. The epic center of the earth and seaquake was directly next to the city. The death tomb was 15,000 practically all the buildings and the city were ruined. Reconstruction took years, maybe there are not any monuments but there are things to see. The new great musk is just as nice as the old had been.
In the place of the devastated old town, a new badino was built which is practically a village museum where a little Arab town was created with the concentrated use of the materials and patterns of Morocco architecture. Coco Palitsi design by a famous Sicilian architect, a crown lying on the area of four square kilometers was made for the tourists. The conception was the symphonies of the motives of the Mediterranean and the Berbers of the Sahara.
To reduce the supposedly high calls of the construction, they collected admission fees, 180 handicrafts shops, Arab café’s and four restaurants can be found on the inside. The construction is continuous. In the near future, the developed of the botanical garden will be started. The prices and the shops are higher than in the bazaars and its not possible to bargain as much but the articles of controlled quality are made in front of our eyes. Photographers should not miss this.
If we sit around at this essence of Moroccan culture, we understand why Pierre Poivre, the French writer who settled in Istanbul, Santuk Supari the pilot writer, Tennessee Williams, John Johnny, film directors Bernardo Bertolucci and George Lucas, the crime story writer Agatha Christy and the Orientalist professor Germanous admire the country.
Agadir is primarily a holiday resort with the pleasantly warm weather often with hazy air in the mornings and bright sunshine in the afternoons. Due to its favorable location, the ocean moderates the warmth of the Sahara and athletes protect it from the winds. The hotels of the city meet all expectations. We can find cheap little hotels further from the coast and going towards the coast. We find four or five star luxury hotels. Several hotels have there own beach on the coast and we can find swimming pools and all of that. In many of them, all exclusive service is offered. Fitness and wellness centers function in them and the organizers tempt the tourist with different sports opportunities. In one of the hotel’s of Agadir operates the biggest - therapeutic center of the world.
On the sand of the coast, we can try the camel ride and on the farther sand dudes, we can ride a quad which is a four wheel sand runner. We may surf or kite and they may also organize day long yacht excursions. As an evening program, we can see the high quality show at the café de padi. There is who would like something more authentic should not miss the Berber music night. Dinner is served in a real cast ball which consist of tagine and cuscus naturally.
