La Medina d’Agadir was the brainchild of a Moroccan-Italian called Coco Polizzi. Located a short distance outside of the heart of Agador, the sprawling site was completed in the late 2000s. The goal was to recreate the ancient medina that perished in the earthquake. The result is a beautiful complex that utilised the skills of many master artisans from around the country.

Constructed using locally sourced materials, the stone and earthen buildings are striking, the narrow alleyways enchanting, and the market places tempting. Craftspeople demonstrate their skills in workshops throughout the medina, including henna tattoo artists, stonemasons, wood carvers, metalworkers, artists, and jewellery makers. The olde-worlde streets also contain a number of restaurants, cafes, and stores.
