Medina & Notre Dame de Lagouira

Today we will be visiting the medina. A medina is an ancient walled city frequently found in North Africa. The streets are very narrow and maze-like but are packed with people and markets selling everything one could think of. Sitting in the middle of Lagouira's medina is the Al-Qadereya Mosque.




By night, the medina is quiet with the green glow of Al-Qadereya mosque accompanying a few late night card-games.



Notre Dame de Lagouira was completed in 1892 and is the largest cathedral in Northern Africa. It sits on the promenade which runs along the Atlantic ocean and surely boasts one of the best setting for a cathedral in the world. While Gharbiyya is mostly Muslim, there is a sizeable Roman Catholic community, particularly amongst the French Gharbiyyan people (Gharbiyyan's with French ancestry).



I hope you have enjoyed this latest visit to the city of Lagouira but for now the sun sets on another Gharbiyyan day.

Love the last picture of the beach and I love the picture of all those houses surrounding that small mosque.

first, where did you get that Cathedral? I'm always on the hunt for unique religious buildings...never want too many repeats of churches throughout my city.

second, how do you setup the middle eastern style neighborhoods since you aren't using streets but just tiny little pedestrian alleys. Is it just eye-candy, giant lots?
