The coastal town of Larache is the antithesis of Asilah. The whitewashed medina is in need of a paint job. The Qebitat, a 16th century Portuguese fort, is crumbling. The shops are short on souvenirs. Reaching Larache is somewhat complicated. So why take the kids? Larache is a laid-back port city. - There are hardly any hustlers and few foreign tourists. - The Moorish medina, while not comparable with the grand old quarters of the imperial cities, is experiencing a renaissance. The salt flats on the north side of Larache are great place to watch birds. The port-side fish market is an evocative attraction. - Take in a fish auction. Eat grilled sardines. - The ancient settlement of Lixus is but 5 km from the city center. White sand beaches stretch from the Loukkos River. What's more, a family trip to Larache affords an authentic cultural experience.
