The Port of Safi is a charming city with a vibrant old city center. Well-known as a pottery-making center, visitors have ample opportunity to watch potters at work. Among the Port of Safi’s sights are the Dar el-Bahar and the Kechla, both of them Portuguese fortresses now converted to other uses. The Dar el-Bahar is a hotel and the city’s most photographed building. It also offers magnificent views of the Port of Safi and the sea. The Kechla is bigger and closer to the sea. It was a prison until 1990. Today, it is the home of a local ceramic exhibition.
