This castle is worth of visit, because the panoramic view to the old Medina and surrounding, I suggest the visitors had better start the tour early in the morning that's gonna make a gorgeous day! In the exhibition we saw a serial weapons display through the major war-period of times in Morocco. What a complicated feeling to learn that people has invested so much efforts and dedicated their live to destroy one another.
