Shrine of Al-Mu'tamid ibn Abbad the last king of sevilla in Aghmat (قبر الغريب)

Muhammad Ibn Abbad Al Mutamid (Arabic: المعتمد بن عباد‎; reigned c. 1069–1091, lived 1040-1095) supported the Almoravid ruler Yusuf ibn Tashfin :master: against king Alfonso VI of Castile in the Battle of Sagrajas ( معركة الزلاقة) in 1086. In 1091, however, his kingdom was overthrown by the Almoravids and he was deposed.

He is also considered, in his own right, one of the greatest of the Andalusi poets
In 1091 Al-Mutamid was taken into captivity by the Almoravids and exiled to Aghmat, Morocco where he died in 1095. His grave is located in the outskirts of Aghmat
the shrine was renovated in 1970

the tal'a madrasa founded by the marinids in salé (1341)

the tal'a medresa was an islamic college in salé , it was constructed by the marinid sultan Abou Al Hassan ali ( reigned c.1331-1342 )



it went under renovation works for a couple of years before it reopened to the public as of april 2005
La medersa mérinide, l'une des plus petites du genre au royaume, a été construite vers 1340 par le roi Abou al-Hassan Ali pour servir de lieu pour le savoir et l'apprentissage. Adossée à la Grande Mosquée, elle a été érigée sur trois niveaux, avec une superficie de près de 180 m2 englobant un extraordinaire patio à ciel ouvert et des cellules pour les étudiants internes. Délaissée pendant des décennies, comme ce sera le cas pour une grande partie du patrimoine national, elle a été réduite à l'état de simple foundouk.

Dar al-Makhzen (governor palace) built by Ali Arrifi in the 17th century ; kasbat Almahdia ,Kenitra.

Le palais Dar al Makhzen, le plus important monument de la casbah de Mehdiya, fut construit sous le règne du sultan alaouite Moulay Ismail au XVIIème siècle et a servi de demeure pour son gouverneur Ali Ar-Rifi. L’édifice, construit selon le plan-type des palais et demeures marocains, est doté d’une vaste cour à ciel ouvert entourée de quatre grandes pièces. On y trouve aussi des bâtiments réservés à l’habitation, des magasins, un hammam, des citernes, un puits, en plus de trois petits jardins. Ce complexe est composé d’un rez-de-chaussée surmonté d’un à deux étages.

Wow very interesting.
Another forgotten jem.
Are we sure this castle is in Morocco?
The architecture of the monument reminds me more of european style constructions.

The author of the photo gave me the area where this photo has been taken,
it's near Tanger, precisely near cap malabata in a small village called Mnar or Mnari, here's the exact location : Click.

The datation of the location according to the IDPC (inventaire du patrimoine culturel du Maroc) is in the beginning of the XXth century,
i didn't find any info about who built it, but found more photos :

The question is, who built it and for what reason ?

Thank you for your research the-s.

I was quite sure it was a XIXe century construction. Probably built par europeans in the european medieval style.
I think there are many forts in Algeria built by the french for military purpose. Even in France, there are some.

They really should think about protecting and restoring it.

You're welcome.

They should restore also its original look, when we compare the first photo that i posted and the others, we can see that the windows (?) are a recent addition.

Another hidden site :

Gara de Medouar or the portuguese prison
Region of Errachidia, Near Rissani (31.300438, -4.400210)

According to a spanish blog, it was either a prison for sub-saharan slaves/portuguese prisoners or a local dam... Nothing sure, though.

Magnifique. Je savais pas que Souira Lqdima avait un petit fort. Je pense que le Maroc est le pays Mena qui dispose du plus de monuments (hors période antique)... À l'exception de la Turquie et de l'Iran bien sur.
J'en ai découvert de nombreux sur Sccm grâce au travail de notre ami the-s.
