Built at the end of the 18th century, it is the historic heart of the city and the main center of activity with the port. Surrounded by a Vauban-style wall, the Medina is protected by fortifications where the European style blends harmoniously with the Arab-Muslim style. The Sqala de la Kasbah is an example accessible and open to the public of these fortifications where the walls are still under attack from the ocean. Inside, the maze of alleys divides the districts and the various souks. Fairly organized despite everything, the souk offers all types of products. Clothing rubs shoulders with spices, necklaces, bracelets and other items follow olives and other fruits and vegetables. There are many restaurants where the fresh fish caught in the morning is cooked for lunch or dinner. Many other typical dishes are also offered and it is good to stop on a terrace, in the refreshing shade of the trees. The Medina was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001.
Leaning against the ramparts and in a dead end, this traditional riad of 83 m² on the ground is built on three levels and benefits from openings on two facades.
On the ground floor, the space revolves around a central fountain under a glass dome that bathes the room in light.
A guest toilet, an open and equipped kitchen, a dining area and a living room with fireplace make up this first level.
The riad has seven bedrooms and five bathrooms, spread over the three upper floors.
On the third and last floor, a double terrace is dedicated to relaxation and meals.
In terms of atmosphere and decoration, cedar wood, bejmat, facing stones and even tadelakt have been used in keeping with the traditional Moroccan spirit.
In the corridors, the railings and pillars are made of chiseled wood, as are the bedroom doors, thus giving off a warm atmosphere.
