About Agadir

Agadir has unique location – a wide beach along bay that is hidden from strong oceanic waves and winds by a mountain ridge. This trait helped the city to develop as an international resort.

Unfortunately in 1960 Agadir was demolished by an earthquake. 30% of citizens were deceased, 30% were wounded and almost everyone was left homeless. All of buildings that you will see in Agadir were either reconstructed or newly built in the end of 20th century.
