Asilah is a city that was founded by the Phoenicians, it dates from pre-Roman and Roman times. In 1471, the city was taken by the Portuguese and thus became a busy trading center.
Asilah obtained Moroccan nationality in 1691 under the command of Moulay Ismail.
Nowadays, it has become a city where there is a relaxed atmosphere in a jovial environment, namely that its medina has been well maintained over time and even today. Its narrow cobbled streets are lined with houses.
Several painters have frequented this city, and have even left signs of their passages that you can find on the walls of the city.
