Essaouira Excursion

Formerly known as Mogador and situated on the Atlantic Coast, Essaouira is a picturesque fortified town famous for its narrow winding streets, handicrafts and fresh fish only 3 hours drive from Marrakech.

Proceso de extracción del aceite de Argan Unlike much of the rest of Morocco, the climate in Essaouira is mild in the winter and cool in the summer providing the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. With its golden beaches, harbour full of traditional fishing boats and more laid back medina full of craftsmen carving wood, it is well worth a visit. The distinctive white washed buildings with their blue shuttered windows and doors are reminiscent of the Mediterranean.
A favourite haunt of musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Cat Stevens and Bob Marley, Essaouira is home to the annual festival of Gnaoua music, held in June each year. Its medina is a protected UNESCO site. On this day visit, as well as visiting the media, markets and beach, you will have the chance to see:

Derb Lealouj – the Jewish district with its Portugese ramparts
Place Prince Moulay El Hassan
Skala du Port
Municipal Market

On the way to Essaouria there will also be time to visit the Argan Cooperative where you will be able to watch women make Argan products such as oil, butter and cosmetics.

Duration: approx 9 hours
