Climb the Kasbah Oufella in Agadir


The Kasbah Oufella in Agadir offers some of the best panoramic views of the city. Many don't realize that Agadir is a relatively new city, as the old city was nearly destroyed by the Agadir Earthquake of 1960. Although a relatively minor earthquake (5.8 on the Richter scale), the epicenter was in the city's heart, and the depth was quite shallow. The quake caused immense damage to the city, flattening most buildings over one story and killing or injuring more than two-thirds of the city's residents. Just about the only thing that remained was the wall of the Kasbah. From here, you have a great view of the marina, beach, and the new city of Agadir.
