Just go there and imagine all the canons firing the enemy coming from the ocean. Beside the strong winds, the vue is spectacular and the seagulls are everywhere.

We really enjoyed being on the ramparts. After a lot of travel it was great to be in the fresh air and see the blue skies. We all relaxed here and took many great photos.

The tower by the fishing port has an entry fee of just 10 DH whereas the other waal with cannons is free to wander up from a narrow alley. Look out for the "free" sweet giver, you're expected to pay afterwards.

There are two sets of ramparts. To the south adjacent to the fishing port (small entry fee) and others further north along the sea wall that are a bit harder to find, but nicely restored and well worth a visit with great views.
