Kasbah

Built in 1540, all that remains of the old Kasbah are the fortified walls, however, the trip up the hill to this historic site is worth it for the view alone. Engraved into the hill in Arabic are the words God, King and Country. The Moroccans are prohibited to speak anything bad about any of these three things. If you are interested in history you can easily find a professional guide here to take you on a tour.
