Essaouira Day Tour

Essaouira Day Tour

The last Mogador situated about two hours and a half drive from Marrakech to the west on the coast of Atlantic. You will reach the ancient port of Mogador built by the Portuguese on a narrow peninsula beside a vast crescent of fine sand facing a huge and large bay. Nestled securely behind its impressive French-built, 18th century rampart, the largely pedestrian medina town of pretty, whitewashed house has a character and charm all in its own. The old town divided into different quarters by its grid system layout, comprises a souk, a myriad of narrow lane, sea defenses, fishing port and a large square. From the impressive promenade of the defensive “Scala”, lined with Spanish canons, one has a magnificent view of waves breaking over the rocky shore. The activities of quayside and fish auction, Sheds are enhanced by pavement eateries selling fresh fish meals with reasonable prices. Essaouira is well known by its fine handcraft  especially objects carved from wood (notably, local, thuya) often, beautiful inset with lemon wood, ebony, mother of pearl or threads of copper or silver.
