I wouldn’t recommend wasting your time. Not the best site, poorly sign posted and surrounded by villagers. I’d stay away

Lovely compact city for an couple of hours stroll. Ramparts, fishing harbour, the old cistern and more. Enjoy it while you can before it becomes a hot spot

An interesting 1-3 hour visit. The medina is particularly pleasant--compared to the ones in Rabat & Marrikesh which wre anything but pleasant. Many merchants spoke some english, prices negotiable and there was no pressure to purchase.
