LARACHE
Fort of small domes

Portuguese fort in Larache, Morocco


Portuguese fort in Larache, Morocco


Located at the most dramatic spot in Larache, on the cliffs, overlooking the Atlantic and the river valley of Loukos, it is a tragedy that this 16th centurt Portuguese fort is totally unattended by local authorities. Year by year bits fall off, and a local monument is changed into dust and sand. The only thing that gives protection to the walls and floors, is the garbage.
