Asilah Overview

Asilah is a fortified town and fishing village, on the coast of Northern Morocco,and not far from the city of Tangiers. The fortifications and walls you see today in Asilah were built by the Portugese and during the 18th and 19th centuries Asilah was largely used by pirates.
It has however previously been home to many other groups throughout the ages due to the town's natural harbour- Byzantines, Romans and Normans to name a few.
the town itself dates back to 1500 BC, and its gateworks and ramparts still remain today thanks to a large restoration project of the whole town in the late 1970s.
The main coastal road from Tangiers leading into Asilah now boasts several apartment complexes and hotels which are largely used by tourists, looking to visit Paradise Beach, or enjoy one of the town's many cultural festivals.If you are interesting in visitng this fantastic city, you can contact this guy who can be your guide http://facebook.com/abbassa.hicham
