El Jadida is one of Morocco’s underrated destinations! You can see a different side of the country, far
away from the large tourist crowds of places. Discover a city built on the Atlantic coast by the
Portuguese in the 16th century. Known for its remarkable "Portuguese city" which is a UNESCO
heritage site, El Jadid is a famous town for its fortified ramparts and impressive sea defenses.
As you explore the medina, admire wrought-iron balconies and houses constructed in the traditional
Portuguese style. Stroll through sleepy back streets to ancient squares where mosques and churches
stand side by side and gaze out over the traditional fishing boats bobbing on the waves in the harbor.
After having lunch at your own expense at one of the seafood cafes in El Jadida, hop back into your
vehicle for the scenic 20-minute journey to the charming Portuguese fortified village of Azemmour.
The town is refreshingly calm and will give you a good idea about the tranquil Moroccan way of life in
a small town.
In Azemmour, enjoy a walking tour through the pretty, white-washed Old Town and soak up the
atmosphere in this ancient corner of Morocco. Admire the city walls — decorated by many talented
artists who call Azemmour home — and visit the 16th-century synagogue, a symbol of the age-old
coexistence between Arabs, Jews, and Morocco’s native Berbers.
Casablanca is Morocco’s chief port and one of the largest financial centers in Africa. Located in the central-western part of Morocco
