Agadir kasbah also known as “Agadir Oufella” in berber translated to “The Upper Agadir” offers a stunning view of Agadir. If you ever been to New York City, you know that the Empire State building offers an amazing view of New York City. The same hold true of Agadir Kasbah.  It is overlooking both the city and the beach and reaches a height of 236 meters. Agadir Oufella walls were constructed at 1540 by Mohammed Cheikh, Moroccan king belonging to the dynasty Saadian. The initial walls were built in order to protect the town from the Portuguese invasions. 
The site was rebuilt around 1752 to increase the security of Agadir. After the earthquake of 1960, the Kasbah was reconstructed.  The Kasbah offers astonishing view while driving toward it. Perfect time to visit is during the sunset or during evening for a night view ofAgadir board walk, beach and ville nouvelle.
