My wife and I wanted to visit the Kasbah Ruins and we decided to use the cable car as it looked like a great way to get to the amazing viewpoint. The The cable car station is very impressive and the staff were really friendly. You can book either a VIP cable car, which has extra features inside or buy just an ordinary ticket. The cable car jouney was superb and it will be even better when they have completed some of the major development projects in the area.

On arrival at the top you can only be impressed by the Kasbah Ruins - they are so impresive. In addition, you have some amazing views of an, Agadir and the working harbour. We could not belive how many fishing boats there were in the harbour.

There are a few traders at the top offering you camel rides or trying to sell you things, but they soon leave you alone when you say that you are not interested.

The walk around the outside of the walls offered different views of the area. Be aware you cannot walk all the way round and you are not able to go inside the ruins.

After taking in the amazing views we took our cable ride back, again the views from the cable car were very good. We really enjoyed the visit to Agadir Oufella and the Kasbah Ruins and would certainly recommend using the cable car to get there and back.

Went up here on the cable car. 20 minutes is more than enough. You get constantly hassled by sellers so it's hardly enjoyable. Took a few photos then promptly left. The cable car is reasonably priced. Takes 8 minutes each way. Amazing views of Agadir. Definitely worth going on if in Agadir. Parking very good to.

Wrap up well & take extra layers for a sunset visit.
Take the cable car up, walk as much of the walls as allowed, there is currently restoration work being undertaken so a full circuit is not possible. Then sit on the walls & watch the sunset across the ocean.

Nice views and a bit of information about the old kasbah but you can’t get inside.
Some sellers and camel rides available

Destroyed by an earthquake in 1960, the old city of Agadir disappeared behind these walls. What happened for the next 60 years is worth the tourist van or cable car journey up there and the view is stunning.

The Kasbah is the only remaining part of the original city which was destroyed by an earthquake in 1960, and it has required extensive restoration, still ongoing. You can walk up, it is very steep, or take the cable car, costs 80 dirhams return, enjoy the view as you travel, and when you reach the top you can walk all around it , but not inside. Some say this is because of the restoration, but I was approached by a local who was acting as a guide, and he said it was because the interior was the graves of many of the 15000 who were killed. You can also look down on a large area which has not been developed. and never will be, as it is where the bodies of so many were not recovered, but just covered over.
The view from here are stunning, you can see all over the city and the harbours, great for photos. A sucession of boards tell the history of the Kasbah.
If you are in Agadir, I think you should always visit this site, and remember the tragedy which hit this city, and admire what has arose in its place.

We negotiated a taxi rate at 120 dirhams to drive to visit the kasbah, wait and bring us back. Leaving at 9.30 we got there early while it was quiet. Atmospheric December morning light and a lovely breeze.

Agadir was levelled by earthquake in 1960 so this is all that remains of old Agadir. The before and after photos are quite sobering and as always helpful friendly Moroccans happy to chat or point you to something interesting. Equally cheerful even if you dontbuy anything.

Great views. Wortha trip out and we will come back to get a setting sun pic beforewe leave.

You can get up the hill and walk around the walls. I popped my head through the main door- builders were busy rebuilding interior walls. No public access. Obviously has potential once completed.

Tuesday 15th November and we took the cable car to the top of Mount Agadir where this ancient citadel is located.

Standing at the summit of the mountain at 236 metres (774 feet) there are impressive views across the new City of Agadir, it's three harbour and it's lengthy beach, promenade and surrounding area.

On the 29th February 1960, at 11.40 pm the old City was hit by an earthquake measuring 5.7 on the scale. Over 15,000 people lost their lives and 25 000 were injured.

Over 90% of the Kasbah was destroyed and buildings raized, only the southern wall survived. There are information boards around with photographs showing the horrors caused

Even today it is still not permitted to enter the Kasbah as building works are still ongoing.

Outside the old City walls have been tastefully and well rebuilt which enables visitors to walk around part of the walls and enjoy the views.

There were a few stalls up there selling souvenirs and touristic tat. Camels were also available to ride.

Along the way we picked up a self-appointed Guide, Abdul. Ñormally we would say no thanks, but in this instance we were happy for him to walk us around, he was not pushy or aggressive. He was entertaining and full of information, historic, cultural and social. He pointed out landmarks and points of interest and we did find it very interesting.

When we were leaving, he started to move away, no big push for money. We gave him about £3, it was well worth his time and knowledge, he was most appreciative.

We got here by cable car, others were on coach tours or drove some walked all the way up. Our Guide did inform us that that was an area at the top where some visitors paraglide back down.

It was a bit disappointing that the Kasbah was closed, however it was an experience and great views, we enjoyed it all.
