Essaouira Once called Mogador by sailors and traders. It is well known for its Gnaoua festival held around the month of June. It is also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage city. The modern name means "the little rampart" as a reference to the fortress walls that still enclose part of the city.
Essaouira is at once familiar and exotic with its fortified walls, fishing harbor and seagulls soaring and screaming over the town. At first it seems as though this could be a town in Brittany or France due to its Portuguese style.
During your tour you will get the chance to enjoy this charming artist colony around its lovely white-washed and blue shuttered houses, numerous galleries all around the hidden streets of the old part of the city and thuya wood workshops. Your tour will take you through the sunlit pedestrian main square as well where you can enjoy a coffee or a mint tea then through the Skala. You will also get to enjoy the fishing port of the city which offers a breathtaking view of the Portuguese ramparts. Fresh fish and mouth watering seafood is always available in case you want a taste of it. You won’t be disappointed if you are after local musician instruments because Essaouira is just full of them, as well as unique and exotic jewelry markets.
The city of Essaouira has played and still playing an important role in the Jewish community and history, if you are interested by learning more about this part of Essaouira’s culture we can provide you with an extended tour of the city but it has to be requested in advance.
