Images from El Jadida

It was known as Mazagão. From 1502 to 1769 the Portuguese controlled the area and built a beautiful fortification. Drawing on advancements in design and thought from the Renaissance, the Portuguese left behind an amazing structure that currently is identified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In 1769 the fort was abandoned and the colonists were sent to a new colony…Brazil. El Jadida was then taken by Sultan Mohammed ben Abdallah.

  1. These are some great shots Kurt! I love the diversity here – everything from overhead perspective shots to close-up at the fish shop.

  2. Forts are one of my favorite things to visit (recently visited the forts where the Battle of Puebla was fought). The city looks so interesting. Would love to visit.
