A quick 45 kilometers away is Asilah, one of Morrocco’s oldest cities. And on this day trip, you will experience that rich history. Discover the ramparts, built by the Portuguese in the last 15th and early 16th centuries. Climb to the top for a picturesque view of the Atlantic Ocean. Trek over to the Portuguese-built El-Kamra tower, the tallest building in the town.
Learn about the sordid past of the looming tower that was once part of the ancient defense structure, and home to a prominent Riffian bandit back in the 19th and 20th centuries when Asilah served as a base for pirates. Take a break from history to appreciate Asilah as a current active cultural center.
The tourist-oriented Summer Arts Festival runs during the warmer months. Whereas nearby San Bathrolome, a church built by Franciscan priests from Northwest Spain, is a nice place to visit year round.
Leave your hotel around 10 am when your driver and guide pick you up and see all these places, and still be back before dinner, around 4 pm.
