History

 

Most of Asilah’s medina was built under Arab Muslim rule between the 8th and 10th century. However, the ramparts surrounding it were built by the Portuguese, who conquered the city in 1471. They ruled Asilah until 1589, when it returned to Moroccan rule briefly before being under the Spanish rule.

 

Later, in the 17th century, Moroccans took control over the town again. In the 18th and 19th centuries, it became a base for pirates. Today, the city is independent. Nevertheless, its great colonial past is reflected in the diversity of its cuisine and culture.

Ramparts & Beaches


More than 500 years ago, the ramparts of Asilah were built by the Portuguese and have been restored many times. Not only they have old-world charm, but also they offer a perfect spot for sunset stroll and for taking photographs of the town and the ocean. 


Moreover, Asilah has its share of beaches. The best beach is located 1.5 miles/3 kilometers south of the medina. The beach is distinguished for its cleanliness, beauty; and being a great place for swimming, subtaning or riding a camel along the sand.
