A boutique hotel within an ancient Portuguese church. This can only mean one thing; total peace and tranquillity within the most beautiful of surroundings. Its 16th Century roots are echoed throughout the hotel with original features still very visible and an interior highlighted with antique finds from across the country. For a truly authentic and tranquil break, L’iglesia won’t disappoint.
El Jadida is a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated on the coast of the Atlantic. L’Iglesia looks out onto the ocean and sits in close proximity of the lively hubbub of the city. Meander along the charming streets and spend your afternoons bartering over authentic goods or walk along the ramparts and watch as young boys daringly plunge down into the sea. Oozing a small town feel, getting lost in this quiet place is a real pleasure.
With just fourteen rooms, L’Iglesia is the ultimate boutique getaway retreat in the most unique of settings. Each room is individually furnished with objects sourced from antique markets and souks worldwide. The suites are coolly styled with a variety of antique Moroccan furnishings. Relax in your sophisticated bathroom and enjoy a siesta in the separate living room. You’ll be feeling relaxed in no time.
Why We Love It
It is without a doubt the curiosity and uniqueness of staying in an ancient church which appeals to us so much. Enjoy the finest North African cuisine in the place of the former nave, or how about breakfast next to the ramparts with a view out to the ocean? Though centuries old, L’Iglesia feels fresh and modern and yet retains every inch of its originality and charm. What could be better?
