I didn’t had a chance to a deep visit of Asilah; we were in a shortage of time, travelling alone, with a wrench open car and didn’t risk to stop, only caught a general idea.
Close to Tangier this old city with a wide beach, keeps well visible the signs of Portuguese occupation. With its white houses, this city should be a good stop, but… I was in a rush.
It was quite a surprise for us, the long, wide, sandy beach of Asilah, empty in… September.
Out of tourist circuit? Dangerous currents?
That emptiness couldn’t happen in Portugal!
Portuguese heritage is present in most cities in Moroccan coast, but nowhere I had the immediate and strong sensation of… Portuguese work, that I had here, even before entering the city.
The port, the fortress, the houses, everything seemed to breath… Portugal.
Was it a wrong idea, from a quick passing by?
