Asilah Things to Do: 35 reviews and 92 photos
The Medina is an easy place for a stroll and you can kill a morning or afternoon having a wander around. While you're walking about, you'll see some terrific murals all over the place. I felt these were actually rather good quality and it was quite fun turning another corner and seeing something completely different to the last, great flashes of colour on the whitewashed streets.
The murals are painted each year during the town's International Cultural Festival. Some of them you can read who painted it, others are more anonymous. I was really impressed by the variety and imagination of these and it added a nice touch to the Medina. So you get to take in a bit of art, all for free. While I was in Asilah, the international arts centre and gallery were closed, so this was pretty much the only 'cultural activity' that was available.
I liked this one in particular and so took a few photos from different angles. It's called 'The Tree of Life' and the little people on the wall also continue up electricity and phone lines, not just painted on the walls.
Directions: Throughout the Medina streets
