 Believed to have initially been constructed by the Phoenicians as a trade post around 1500 B.C., and serving as home to a procession of conquerors thereafter, even being a haven to pirates at one time in its history, the seaside resort of Asilah (or Arzila) boasts well preserved gates and ramparts as a reminder of its colorful past. All development at this popular tourist destination has been carried out in such a way as to blend-in with, and complement, its ancient structures and visitors are assured of a warm welcome by the friendly locals.
