One Day Trip from Marrakech: Essaouira - Mogador

  • Difficulty Level
  • Duration Time
    8 Hours
  • Number of Person
    1 - 20 Person

Essaouira has been called “Mogador”, the well drawn. Marquetry of thuja, lemon trees and cedar keep throughout the years their precious wooden scent and bewitching charm. Polished and painted wood, marble sculptures, ceramic marquetries, paintings… Essaouira is home of master craftsmen. Forever guarded against pirates, the city has always been safe behind its long tall walls and its artillery, the “skala de la Kasbah”. The canons upon the walls form a unique architecture against which the waves crash day after day. Everywhere you look there are souvenirs in this city which has kept its secrets and treasures well hidden.

What you’re going to do

Essaouira is the region's prime attraction. It first attracted international attention when Orson Welles chose it as a location for his 1952 film of Othello. It lies beneath low Mediterranean-type hills, carved up into small stony fields dotted with olive trees and thorny argans. Designed by a European engineer, a captive of the Sultan Mohammed Ben Abdullah, Essaouira has wider, more regularly shaped streets than is usual in Moroccan medinas. As you leave the confines of Skala, you will follow Derb Laalouj street to the Museum Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdallah. Here, musical instruments, local andalusian songs, Berber Imazighen documents, weapons, costumes, carpets, and more are displayed in the former residence of the Pasha. Located in the north of the city is the "Mellah", this Jewish Quarter is crossed by the traditional Rue Mohammed Zerktouni. It is bordered by a market that extends to Bab Doukkala. During your stay, you will also be able to enjoy beautiful beaches full of sun year-round!
