Portugese history, El Jadida – Morocco

On the Atlantic Coast in Morocco is an old Portugese fortified city from early 16th Centuary; in 1769 it was claimed by the Moroccans. Enchanting and tranquil slightly in decay and a memory of bygone days! Also one of the best places to eat fish. In 2004 it was placed under UNESCO protection. Just 90 km south of Casablanca. Wander over the broad fortified walls and visit the underground Cisterne Portugaise (1514). Thereafter go and eat your heart out with fish & seafood. Just outside the old gate is “Poissons Cousteau” large open Portugese style cafe or “Restaurante du Port” at the harbour.

I published a Dutch article on the travel website “Bestemming in Beeld” (Destinationin Pictures) – “Portugees verleden – El Jadida
