Ksar es-Seghir

Ksar es-Seghir, Al-Qasr al-Seghir, Ancient Lissa, is a small town on the Mediterranean coast in northwest Morocco. It was founded by Phoenicians and was known as a salting post in Roman times by the name of Lissa or Exilissa. The first settlement dates back to the Muslim conquest of the Maghreb in 708-709 AD, when a fort was erected there known as Ksar Mesmouda.
