Essaouira Day Trip

Essaouira Day Trip is an easy 2 :30 hour drive from Marrakesh. It might seem a little far to go and come back in one day, but it’s definitely worth it – it is difficult to resist the charms of this wonderful, friendly and relaxed small Moroccan city.
Founded in the 18th century, Essaouira was built to be a rival city to Agadir. Formerly known as Mogador, meaning windy city, it was built as a fortified town surrounded by Vauban-style ramparts. Essaouira played a major role as an international trading seaport, linking Morocco and sub-Saharan Africa with Europe and the rest of the world.
The Medina of Essaouira is one of the best maintained and calm City in Morocco.
