Excursion to Essaouira
Excursion to essaouira to discover ancient Portuguese fortress and fishing port
Essaouira Day Trip From Marrakech:
was the inspiration for Hendrix's song “Castles Made of Sand”.
Visit this sea-side medieval town that boasts lovely white-washed and blue-shuttered houses, colonnades, thuya wood workshops, art galleries and mouthwatering seafood.
The medina of Essaouira (formerly "Mogador") is a UNESCO World Heritage listed city, as an example of a late-18th century fortified town.
Things to do in essaouira :
One of the things to like most about your visit to Essaouira is everything about the sea, its lookout points, the fishing port and especially the Steps of Port or Skala du Port.
There's a long promenade with patina-green cannons and spectacular views of the city walls..
The walls of the city of Essaouira enclose and protect the old city, the medina offer incredible view point, between the sea and the city, It is a perfect place to take good photos.
Porte de la Marine : The door that opens onto the quay provides an initial access to the city. it dates from 1806. Neo-classical style, two fluted columns supporting a triangular pediment.
Old warehouses of ammunition : The former ammunition depots built under the ramparts of Essaouira were cleared and redeveloped into shops. It's a nice place not to be missed. Bel alignment arched doorways. The majority of the "box" offering exhibitions of objects roots of cedar, but there are also workshops for artists, tadelakt ceramics and natural products based on argan oil.
When you finish, I'd suggest continuing around the city walls to explore other areas, or simply getting lost in the surrounding Media.
