DAY 01

Program Itinerary

  • With its picture-postcard stone ramparts and turrets, and its almost perfectly preserved maze-like Medina, Essaouira is the most popular of the Atlantic coastal towns. Inside the town walls, it is all light and charm, a labyrinth of narrow lanes, white washed houses, tranquil squares and artisans in tiny workshops. 

  • Many Europeans and artists, enchanted by the place, have invested in Medina properties and an arty expat influence is evident throughout the town.

  • Essaouira was known as Sidi Megdoul during the time of 11th-century Geographer al-Bakri, as he reported. In the 16th-century, a corruption of this name became known to the Portuguese as Mogador or Mogadore.

  • The Medina of Essaouira (Mogador) is a UNESCO World Heritage site, as an example of a late-18th century fortified town.
