Azemmour

AzemmourAzemmour or Azamor (Arabic: أزمور‎; from Berber: Azemmur, ⴰⵣⴻⵎⵎⵓⵔ, i.e. "The Olives"; Portuguese: Azamor) is a Moroccan city, on the left bank of the Oum Er-Rbia River, 75 km southwest of Casablanca. Although it was a dependency of the King of Fez, Azemmour had great autonomy. In 1486 its inhabitants became vassals and tributaries of João II of Portugal. Manuel I of Portugal confirmed the treaty in 1497 and the city paid 10 000 savéis every year. When resistance began to grow against paying tribute, Manuel in 1508 sent a small fleet commanded by João de Meneses to conquer the city. In 1513 Azemmour's governor Moulay Zayam refused to pay the tribute and mustered a powerful, well-equipped army. Manuel responded to this challenge by sending a massive fleet of 500 ships and 15 thousand soldiers (Bergreen, 19). James, Duke of Braganza led this army and on 1 September he conquered the city with no resistance from its inhabitants. Ferdinand Magellan, the man famed for leading the first-ever circumnavigation of the earth, was among the Portuguese soldiers there; he lost his horse in skirmishes outside the city. Portuguese control of the city lasted only for a short period; it was abandoned by João III of Portugal in 1541 due to his court's economic difficulties.

Es considerada el centro económico y comercial de Marruecos, mientras que la capital política es la ciudad de Rabat. Casablanca acoge la sede y las principales instalaciones industriales marroquíes, así como de empresas internacionales con sede en Marruecos. Casablanca debe su denominación al hecho de que, antiguamente, los marinos portugueses que costeaban este lugar, la identificaban por una pequeña casa blanca situada sobre la colina de Anfa, «a casa branca». Casablanca de "Casa" y "Blanca", palabras cuyo origen viene de lengua romance. Este nombre empezó a utilizarse popularmente cuando el ejército francés ocupa la ciudad en 1907. Actualmente es llamada Casa por los lugareños. Anfa es el nombre nativo real y significa "colina" en lengua bereber. Este nombre ahora es utilizado para referirse a los barrios antiguos de la ciudad históricamente original.

El Jadida

El Jadida (Berber: ⵎⴰⵣⵖⴰⵏ Mazaghan, Arabic: الجديدة Al-Jadida) is a port city on the Atlantic coast of Morocco, in the province of El Jadida. It has a population of 144,440 (2004 census). From the sea, El Jadida's old city; has a very "un-Moorish" appearance; it has massive Portuguese walls of hewn stone. El Jadida, previously known as Mazagan (Portuguese: Mazagão), was seized in 1502 by the Portuguese and controlled until 1769, when they abandoned Mazagão, their last territory in Morocco. Upon their forced departure, the Portuguese destroyed the Governor's Bastion and evacuated to the Portuguese colony of Brazil, where they founded new settlement Nova Mazagão (now in Amapá). The city was then taken over by Sultan Mohammed ben Abdallah in 1769 and remained uninhabited, having been dubbed al-Mahdouma (The Ruined). Eventually, Sultan Abd al-Rahman of Morocco ordered that a mosque be built and the destroyed portions of the city rebuilt. The reinvigorated city was renamed al-Jadida, or The New. Manueline cistern of the El Jadida fortress. Ramparts of El Jadida The Portuguese Fortified City of Mazagan was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004, on the basis of its status as an "outstanding example of the interchange of influences between European and Moroccan cultures" and as an "early example of the realisation of the Renaissance ideals integrated with Portuguese construction technology". According to UNESCO, the most important buildings from the Portuguese period are the cistern, and the Manueline Church of the Assumption. Portuguese Cistern Built in 1514, this former warehouse (possibly an armory) was converted into a cistern in the 16th century. The underground chamber, measuring 34 meters by 34 meters, was constructed with five rows of five stone pillars. The cistern is famous especially for the thin layer of water that covers the floor, and which creates fine and exciting reflections from the little light there is and the spartan shapes of the columns and the roof. Its visual qualities are such that several movies have been filmed within the cavernous space, of which Orson Welles' Othello is the best known internationally.

Essaouira

Essaouira (Berber: ⵎⵓⴳⴰⴹⵓⵔ Taṣṣurt, Arabic: الصويرة‎, as-Ṣawīra) is a city in the western Moroccan economic region of Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, on the Atlantic coast. The city was known in the time of 11th-century Geographer al-Bakri and, as he reported, was called Sidi Megdoul. In the 16th-century, a corruption of this name became known to the Portuguese as Mogador or Mogadore. The Berber and Arabis names mean the wall, a reference to the fortress walls that originally enclosed the city. Archaeological research shows that Essaouira has been occupied since prehistoric times. The bay at Essaouira is partially sheltered by the island of Mogador, making it a peaceful harbor protected against strong marine winds. Portuguese establishment (1506-10)

Kasbah Boulaouane

KASBAH BOULAOUANE Kasbah Boulaouane (arabe: بولاوان) En el meandro del wadi Oum er-Rbia (río Madre de la Primavera), sobre un promontorio, fue erigida esta fortaleza por los almohades, para controlar el camino de la costa a Marrakech y Fez. En el S XVI detuvo el avance de los protugueses, y Mulay Ismail construyó una kasba en 1710. Tiene una única puerta de entrada, con el palacio del sultán con torre cuadrada, mezquita de cinco naves, la tumba del santo Sidi Mancar, armerías abovedadas,... lástima el estado de deterioro. Boulaouane is a small town and rural commune in El Jadida Province of the Doukkala-Abda region of Morocco. The town is near the Oum Er-Rbia River and the fortress (Boulanouane Kasbah) overlooks that river. The fortess or Kasbah that overlooks an important bend in the river was built by Moulay Ismail in 1710. The ten metre high towers command a view of the surrounding area. A Kasbah is basically the Moroccan equivalent of a castle, and this sturdy building was built as a fortress that overlooked the Wadi Oum er-Rbia river. According to historical records, the Boulaouane Kasbah was built by Moulay Ismail in 1710 as part of his efforts to increase peace and stability in the area. The elevated location of the castle on the bend of this river must have been ideal for this. In fact, one of the best parts of visiting the Boulaouane Kasbah in Morocco is the fact that a long, winding climb to the top of the ten meter high tower will afford you with one of the most breathtaking views of the area imaginable. Today the area is incredibly peaceful and many locals have discovered that the Boulaouane Kasbah is the perfect place to get away from it all. Inside the castle in the central courtyard you will find the ‘Sultan’s Palace’ which is where this monarch would have been housed should he choose to visit the Kasbah. The courtyard’s floors and walls are filled with beautiful mosaic decorations that are definitely worthy of a few photographs. You will also find that the body of one of the local saints, Sidi Mancar, is entombed here. Visitors can find the Boulaouane Kasbah by taking the P7 road from Settat and turning off onto the S105. So come and visit this monumental effort to create peace in the region and enjoy some relaxing quiet at the same time.

Parc National Souss Moussa

The Souss-Massa (Arabic:سوس ماسة) National Park is a 33,800 hectare national park on the Atlantic coast of Morocco which was created in 1991. It lies between Agadir to the north and Sidi Ifni to the south and its centre is at 9°40'W 30°5'N. The estuary of the Oued Souss is the northern limit of the park, and that of the Oued Massa is near the southern end. 30,000 ha of land near Aglou, south of the park, is also included in the site because it is sometimes used as a feeding area by the Northern Bald Ibis. The habitat is grazed steppe with dunes, beaches and wetlands. The soil is mainly sandy with some rockier areas. The park's main conservation importance is that it holds three of the four Moroccan colonies of the Northern Bald Ibis Geronticus eremita. Together with the fourth site at nearby Tamri, it holds 95% of the world's truly wild breeding birds of this endangered species.The ibis colonies and roost-sites are located on coastal cliffs within the National Park, and the coastal steppes and fields are used as feeding areas. The park has a nature trail at Oued Souss and a visitor centre at Oued Massa.

Sidi Ifni

Sidi Ifni (Arabic: سيدي إفني‎) is a city located in southwest Morocco, on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. The Ait Baamran tribe has long inhabited the small town and the region surrounding it. They worked in husbandry and traded with Europeans and northern Morocco being intermediaries in the trans-Saharan trade.[1] In 1476, an enclave in the region of present-day Sidi Ifni was occupied by Spain, which named its settlement there Santa Cruz de la Mar Pequeña. It remained in Spanish hands until 1524 when it was captured by Saadian rulers. Until 1952, Ifni region had the status of a protectorate. In this year, the region became part of Spanish West Africa (entity that grouped the colonies of Spanish Sahara and Cape Juby, with its capital defined in Villa Bens—Tarfaya nowadays—in Morocco). In 1969, mostly due to international pressure, Spain relinquished Sidi Ifni to Morocco.

Bajaré hasta TanTan y el regreso lo haré por la costa hasta llegar a Rabat, desde donde me desviaré hacia Fes y Melilla.

    Buenas tardes Antonio, quería hacerte una pregunta. Estoy configurando una ruta para el año que viene y la que tienes publicada del 2014 me parece interesante. No me queda claro si la ruta que hicísteis es todo asfalto o son pistas con cierta dificultad que requiera cierta técnica? Gracias por anticipado

    Las de 2014, no tiene dificultad, son carreteras y pistas practicables, salvo diferencias sobrevenidas en el tiempo. Sólo el tramo en el PARK SOUS MASSA, es sin pista.
