Meet your guide and hop aboard your air-conditioned vehicle for the 1-hour drive to El Jadida.
Once arrived, follow your guide on a tour of El Jadida’s ancient walled city — known as the medina.
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.
