P.P. / P.D.

Scrolling PhotoEssaouria is reminiscent of an age when Spain, Portugal and England struggled to control their coasts and is formally known as Mogador.

It is home to a traditional Portuguese harbor with fine examples of Moorish and Portuguese art. Famous for its fine wood-work, Essaouria is also home to the silver souk (commercial quarter), art galleries and islands. Stroll along the historic ramparts and step back in time.

Just before you arrive in Essaouria you will have the opportunity to stop and take photographs of the goats in the trees and meet the locals at a traditional Argan oil co-operative, where the famous oil is extracted from the Argan nut.

In the medina, see Moulay El-Hassan Square, the Grand Mosque and Siaghine Alley. From the terrace of the north Bastion you can access the marquetry, where the Morocco’s best marqueteurs work on cedar.
