Situated in west-Central Morocco, the region of Doukkala-Abda has a population of close to 2 million. The capital city of the region is Safi.
Within the 13 285 square kilometer region of Doukkala-Abda is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Mazagan which now forms part of the city of El Jadida. This is certainly a fascinating site to visit and tourists should include this on their itinerary. Safi is a fisherman’s haven and boasts a very busy port.
The area of Doukkala itself is a natural plain rich in agriculture. The region is well known for the unique tazota architecture, a stone structure thought to originate from the time of the Portuguese occupation. The quiet region of Doukkala-Abda is a great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.
