Know More about this tourWhen your cruise ship docks in Casablanca, meet your guide at the port and hop aboard your air-conditioned vehicle for the 1-hour drive to El Jadida.
On arrival, follow your guide on a tour of El Jadidas ancient walled city known as the medina. Built on the Atlantic coast by Portuguese colonialists in the 16th century, El Jadida is today a UNESCO World Heritage-listed town famous for its fortified ramparts and impressive sea defences.
As you explore the medina, admire wrought-iron balconies and houses constructed in the traditional Portuguese style. Stroll through sleepy back streets to ancient squares where mosques and churches stand side by side, and gaze out over the traditional fishing boats bobbing on the waves in the harbor.
Discover the Portuguese Cistern, a vaulted cavern originally built as a military arsenal. Gaze down inside the cistern, where a single shaft of light bounces off the water and illuminates the ancient stone arches and columns below.
After lunch (own expense) at one of the seafood cafes in El Jadida, hop back into your vehicle for the scenic 20-minute journey to the fortified village of Azemmour. Pause at the entrance to the village and admire beautiful views over the banks of the Oum Er-Rbia River.
In Azemmour, enjoy a walking tour through the pretty, white-washed Old Town and soak up the atmosphere in this ancient corner of Morocco. Admire the city walls decorated by many of the talented artists who call Azemmour home and visit the 16th-century synagogue, a symbol of the age-old coexistence between Arabs, Jews and Moroccos native Berbers.
