Day Trip to Essaouira from Marrakech
Departure at 8 am. After about 3 hours drive we arrive to the ancient port of Mogador, built by the Portuguese in a narrow peninsula near an immense crescent of fine sand. Perfectly protected by its impressive walls of French construction of the eighteenth century the town is pedestrianized and is easily divided into different quarters of its squared-shaped design. Skala can be seen from the top of the colorful fishing port, the fortresses and the Spanish guns. Essaouira is also known by its fine craftsmanship especially objects interposed so delicious with lemon wood, ebony, mother of pearl or silver or copper wires. If you like seafood you’ll enjoy a tasty lunch at the harbor. Afternoon return to Marrakech.
