The Kasbah is a fortress or castle used to protect the inhabitants. This area has had a varied history and the kasbah has been completely destroyed before being rebuilt in it's current form. The bay below has attractive fishing boats.

Situated in oldest part of town. Entrance in kasba is through Almohads gate called Bab Oudaia. On the end of street is Plateforme du Semaphore with nice view to ocean, river Bou Regreg and Sale town on the opposite side of river.
