A LONDONER IN TANGIER: ASILAH




After a much-needed, month-long hiatus, A-Gent of Style returns as the holiday season draws to a close, at that time of year when summer will soon be a distant memory.

 This summer, A-Gent of Style holidayed in Tangier, Morocco. There will be a few features of this magical city coming up on the blog in the next couple of weeks but today, A-Gent of Style would like to transport you to another enchanting destination.

On the recommendations of many friends, A-Gent of Style was whisked away on his first day to Asilah, the impossibly charming, laid-back fortified resort town located on the Atlantic coast just some 30km south of Tangier. With its impressive gateworks and square stone ramparts flanked by palm trees, Asilah also boasts wide, stretching sandy beaches. It has of course an undeniable Moroccan identity but also a rich history and past, and strong cultural influences, mainly Spanish and Portuguese.

But the most elegant and impressive part of Asilah which took A-Gent of Style‘s breath away is the Medina with its labyrinthine lanes of gorgeous white-washed buildings suffused with splashes of pastel and vivid colours, where combinations of green and blue can be seen in droves (you can imagine A-Gent‘s reaction), and where patterns in all shapes and forms unravel before your eyes in the most incongruous places, all against a pitch-perfect blue sky. Utterly delightful and inspiring. A-Gent of Style defies anyone not to fall for the authentic, unspoiled Asilah. Judge by yourself now.
