Formerly known by its old Portuguese name “Mogador”, Essaouira is a citadel with a prestigious past. It has been occupied since prehistoric times and was famous for its Tyrian factory which supplied Rome with the legendary purple dye.
Essaouira is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt towns in Morocco. A famous trading post 3000 years ago, its stunning beaches have made it the mecca for surfing enthusiasts today.
Essaouria has always been a cradle for artists of all genres and poets, scientists have artists flock to it for centuries. Its main square is worth a visit as this is where all the main cafes, restaurants and patisseries are clustered.
The old harbour has fine examples of both Portuguese and Moroccan architecture, as does the 17th century Mosque and the local artists quarter. Enjoy picturesque views of the fishing port and the walled medina from the bastion of Skala du Port.
