We really loved the rampaarts of Mogador. They are well preserved, with beautiful view points to the ocean and the city. Old canons and great weather

Currently under reconstruction. Entry ticket for non-Moroccans is twice expensive. Still has great view.

Great for a nice wander and some pictures! A bit smelly at times but worth the view. If you watch game of thrones you will recognize a few of the areas
