Conservation of the 16th-Century Agadir O’Fella Kasbah in Agadir

The “kasbah,” or fortress, overlooking the city of Agadir has a long history extending from its construction in the 16th century to its collapse during the 1960 Agadir earthquake.

This project, which involves the conservation of the kasbah’s southwest wall, directly supports the U.S. embassy’s efforts to raise public awareness and support for U.S. policies and values. [Photo credit: Project organizer]
