Safi, pearl of the Atlantic Ocean
The splendid architecture of Kechla and the waters of the Atlantic crashing against its walls: this is one of the many outstanding popular paintings in Safi.
For five centuries now, the fortress has stood as a sentinel on the shores of the ocean. Its high crenellated towers offer admirable views of the surrounding area. It is an opportunity to admire the seafront, the bustling and animated life of this provincial capital.
The pottery district is particularly attractive. Craftsmen make marvels of terracotta and clay that is put on display in the windows and stalls of their shops. Safi is one of the Moroccan capitals of ceramics and in its streets, beautiful trinkets are designed to make charming souvenirs.
