VISIT EL JADIDA

Located approximately 100 Km south of Casablanca on Morocco's Atlantic coast, El Jadida is a bastion of Portuguese architecture and laid-back Moroccan character. Formerly known as Mazagan, the city has been revamped and was given the name El Jadida to represent a new phase in the city's life.

Getting to El Jadida is simple - there are multiple busses and trains that run from the other major cities in Morocco on a regular basis. You can also hire a cab to take you between cities. Petit taxis fit three people and only run within city limits, while grand taxis are shared between six people and run between neighbouring towns.

What to see in El Jadida

When visiting El Jadida there are a few must-see attractions scattered around the city which we can help you see with our excursion activities. The first is the Fortress of Mazagan, a Renaissance-era structure built to withstand attacks from outside its walls. The Fortress of Mazagan is built in a star shape with a walkway running around its edges. Beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean as well as the scenery surrounding El Jadida can be seen from the lofty vantage point on top of the fortress's walls and the towers located on the corners. You can also view the old cannons on the ramparts that once protected El Jadida from invaders.

Near the fortress's four gates are some of the oldest and most well-preserved buildings in El Jadida including the Catholic Church of the Assumption and the Portuguese Cistern, another must-visit when you visit El Jadida.

The Portuguese Cistern was built in 1514 as an armoury and was converted to a cistern during the 16th century. A thin layer of water still covers the floor which creates beautiful reflections of the interior of the room and the elegant supporting columns.

The old port of El Jadida has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Take a walk along the boardwalk where the sea breeze whistles past the old stone buildings and the docks that used to see a bustling trade in Morocco.
