El Jadida

port el jadida , Maroc

El Jadida.

A still very active fishing port although the coasts are difficult. An underwater rocky spur reduces the violence of the west swell.

Port El Jadida au Maroc

El Jadida.

96 km from Casablanca. The port clearly displays the mark of the Atlantic coast, walled city, protected basin, against men and the elements, by two converging piers

Contrast of culture at dusk, the artisanal fishing boats of the “workers of the sea” have just returned as an industrial trawler sets sail

El Jadida.

In the heart of the famous cistern, these two girls who are pursuing a serious conversation, seem seized as by one of these "pursuits" of music hall which follow the singer on the track.

It is the world of silence, but nothing is gloomy. In the light, unreal, coming from the apical openings, it is a moment of confidence. Hush ...

Falconry in El Jadida

 
Fauconniers, El Jadida, Maroc, Jacques Bravo

From Safi to Agadir the road offers innumerable detours. It was not planned at all.

In the small village of Ouled Frej, the falconers of Doukkala hunt with their birds of prey, passerines that will spend a dirty quarter of an hour. Their traditional hunting. Their grave, attentive faces are very beautiful.

Boulaouane

Forteresse de Boulaouane. Maroc, Jacques Bravo

Boulaouane.

It is, almost in the middle of nowhere, a haunted ghost town of a Moroccan Carcassonne.

A little forgotten, if it were not the famous gray of Boulaouane reference of the gastronomes in tajine and skewers, the perfect agreement; the vines are obviously still there, ravenous in the sun. This fortress built on the orders of the great builder sultan Moulay Ismail is planted on a hill which dominates the left bank of the Oum er R'Bia, and watches over this region which commands the road from Casablanca to Marrakech. This is also due to the Crash of the Knights who had a little the same role.

The centuries have eroded certain parts which are restored without haste or excess. When we arrive in this improbable place which seems abandoned by men, we are surprised to see a charming old man arrive riding a mule: the last governor? In any case, a very affable caretaker.

Boulaouane.

The main door. Imperial Kasbah of prime importance at the time of Moulay Ismail, it remains an essential testimony, away from modern roads. Most famous for its gray wine.

Azemmour.

The ancient capital of the Doukkala region is a wonderful island of tranquility.

On the left bank of the Oum er-R'bia, two kilometers from the mouth of the most constant river in Morocco, formerly known for its shad.

Safi Road

On the road to Safi, a typical terroir invented by irrigated fields. The curves of the hills resonate with the curves of the waves breaking on the nearby beach. Like continuity…
