Quick Infos on El Jadida
El Jadida (Berber: Mazaɣan, Mazaghan, ⵎⴰⵣⴰⵖⴰⵏ; Moroccan Arabic: جّديدة, ejjdida; Arabic: الجديدة Al-Jadida; Portuguese: Mazagão) is a port city on the Atlantic coast of Morocco, in the province of El Jadida. It has a population of 144,440 (2004 census). From the sea, El Jadida's old city has a very "un-Moorish" appearance; it has massive Portuguese walls of hewn stone.
The Portuguese Fortified City of Mazagan was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004, on the basis of its status as an "outstanding example of the interchange of influences between European and Moroccan cultures" and as an "early example of the realisation of the Renaissance ideals integrated with Portuguese construction technology". According to UNESCO, the most important buildings from the Portuguese period are the cistern, and the Manueline Church of the Assumption.
