In Agadir, the first sardine harbour in the world, the sirens blare, multicoloured trawlers berth, craggy-faced men repair their nets, fishermen loudly unload boxes of wriggling fish: sardines, whiting, bass, mullet, tuna and shrimps, lobsters and crayfish.
The tagine of Agadir takes its name after the hollow glossy terracotta Maghreb dish, covered with a perfectly tight conical lid, where the ingredients acquire a subtle flavour and fudge.
The basic dish is called 'Amlou'. It is prepared with almonds, cinnamon and honey mixed and sprinkled with Argan oil.
Arts and crafts:
Agadir has a rich and ancient pottery tradition. You will find dishes, plates, salad bowls, bowls and vases, all the pottery or ceramics you need to reequip your kitchen.
The region of Souss has developed a real know-how for jewellery, especially the one made of silver. Tiznit is its capital. There you will find a lot of small shops around the city’s main square.
Local products: ARGAN
The argan tree is the delight of Morocco and consumers of beauty products. This thorny tree, which grows in the region of Essaouira and Agadir, provides the argan oil, which has been used for centuries as edible oil, and which has now become the star ingredient of cosmetic products. It is now used for everything: shampoos, shower gels, moisturizing creams, lotions, soaps, facial masks, refreshing balms, etc. The argan oil is very popular.
