Heritage of the Kasbah of Agadir Oufella

In order to restore the East wall with accuracy, the materials, the architectural and historical specificities have been researched and documented. A preventive excavation operation was carried out to precede the restoration, making it possible to understand the wall stratigraphy of the rampart. Several stratigraphic layers have been unearthed up to the bedrock, as well as archaeological material providing clues to past ways of life at this location of the ramparts.

Over its great length, the East wall is made up of an original rammed earth, with many resumptions of stone work on its periphery, but being itself still very solid over nearly four meters in average height. Once the foundations were cleared and checked, all the fragile parts were consolidated or restored. To rebuild the collapsed parts of this wall after the earthquake, the stone found on the site was favored (reused stone). Originally, the stones were worked with earth mortar (tallaght), but to reinforce the solidity of the structure, the local stone was roughcast with sand-lime mortar.

Histoire Agadir Oufella

The fortress of Agadir has embodied for more than six centuries the importance of this port at the outlets of the great continental routes that linked the Sahara and Europe, Africa and Asia. An exceptional promonatory site overlooking a port structure adapted to international trade, the site was classified as a historical monument in 1932, just after the classification of the patron saint Sidi Boul Knadel in 1922 as a “remarkable site”, facing the sea from the foot of the hill. However, today, its remains are a painful place of memory constantly reminding the inhabitants of the terrible night of February 29, 1960.
