Essaouira Excursion, Morocco
An ancient Portuguese fortress that dates from the 18th century (formerly called Mogador) and one of the most attractive towns along Morocco’s Atlantic coast, Essaouira. Enjoy a two and a half hour drive through vast dry planes and argan plantation.
Your exploration of the town starts by visiting the fortifications consisting of an amazing mixture of Portuguese and Berber military architecture. Take a stroll in the Medina and explore the souks and the carpentry workshops devoted to cedar and thuya wood carving.
You may continue sightseeing and visit the art galleries and the fortified harbour with its stalls of freshly caught barbequed fish. Lunch can be taken in one of the town’s recommended restaurants and the afternoon can be spent far from the hustle and bustle strolling along the beach.
