Bassin de l'Agdal

Edit This

The "Bassin de l'Agdal" on the fringes of the Ville Impériale is a popular outing for the Meknassi, especially young families and the youth.
The Alaouite Sultan Moulay Ismail (1672-1727) had this large artficial basin build as a place of pleasure and recreation for his court. It is also said to have served for the irrigation of the palaces' parcs and gardens.
After an exhausting visit to the Medina and the Ville Impériale it's a nice place for reposing, even though it is a bit scant of green.
