Essaouira, the ancient Portuguese city. The European fortress of the eighteenth century, the sensation of the Atlantic and the Maritime air, is located two and a half hours from Marrakech, passing through dry plantations and the most famous tree of “the Argan”.
Essaouira, the historic port city, formerly known as “MOGADOR” is now the cradle of artists and surfers from all over the world, seeking adventure, fun, calm, serenity and inspiration. The latter reflects the radiance and grandeur of the region’s Arab-Portuguese and Berber culture.
Start your tour of Essaouira by exploring the ancient fortifications that marry Portuguese and Berber architecture. Take a stroll in the old Medina and discover its souks, its painters and carpentry workshops, and try their cedar wood sculptures.
And that’s not all. The visit is far from complete, go to discover the cultural side of the city, visit the art galleries, let yourself be carried away by the colors and the charm of an art that calms the nerves.
A small promenade of lovers, on the Atlantic coast, is always a pleasure to close a special day
