Essaouira has an interesting historic center surrounded by ancient ramparts, making it an excellent place to spend a day. Discover the atmospheric alleyways in the ancient medina, as well as its historic ramparts in an ocher color that now provide protection from the Atlantic Ocean’s wind.
With its whitewashed medina surrounded by huge pink sandstone ramparts (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and its rich Portuguese and Andalusian heritage, Essaouira was founded by the Phoenicians in the 7th century BC. In the 15th century, the Portuguese arrived and built the first fortifications and a trading post. The city itself was not built until the second half of the 1700s, at the instigation of the Alaouite Sultan Mohammed II.
From a long beach of white sand and dunes to a bustling fishing port with excellent seafood and colorful wooden fishermen. Seafood and colorful wooden fishing boats, Essaouira has always been a favorite vacation spot for hippies, sailors, artists, and musicians thanks to its seafood and colorful wooden fishing boats. A number of local attractions can be found in Sidi Med Ben Abdallah, including the Sidi Med Ben Abdallah Museum, a lively market (perfect for shopping and souvenirs), the old city gates, and the impressive sqalas, or fortified bastions. A walk along Essaouira’s impressive sandy beach is a favorite activity for most visitors.
