A classic of Morocco and one whose reputation is well-deserved. A beautiful and atmospheric place, buzzing in the day and beautiful at dusk and in the evening. Featured in Game of Thrones too so you can tick that off! One of my favourite places in...More

Just go there and imagine all the canons firing the enemy coming from the ocean. Beside the strong winds, the vue is spectacular and the seagulls are everywhere.
