The memory wall recalls the great earthquake that destroyed the ancient city of Agadir in 1960. It remembers the challenge that the Moroccan government faced, having to start over to build a city from scratch. King Mohammed V declared that if fate had destroyed the city, then faith and the will of the people would bring it back. These words, in Arabic, are inscribed on the wall, which stands in front of the city hall.
A visit to Agadir fishing port also allows you to discover an amazing shipyard. Relatively far from the docks, boats are being built in a tight space, hard to imagine how, nested next to each other, the sea Carpenters construct wooden hulls covered with vermilion paint, or more rarely, royal blue. The arc welders are at work to finish the rail. The construction site is a must-see!
