Trip To Essaouira And Argan Forest

 Day trip to Essaouira, the former Mogador built on a rocky peninsula,  with its ramparts in vigil on the ocean, its medina in white and blue  tones, its busy port and its long sandy beaches.

The history of Essaouira dates back to the 8th century BC. The  Phoenicians stopped there on the road of the equator. The real founder  of the city was the Alaouite sultan Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah, who  entrusted the construction to Theodore Cornut, architect and student of  Vauban Essaouira is now a nice little fishing port very lively at the  arrival of the boats where sardines and crustaceans are sold at the  auction. On the docks, fishermen repair the red nets.

Enjoy the sardine grilled outdoors in the harbor's small  restaurants, then discover the Sqala du Port, a crenellated bastion  built to protect the harbor and the city. It consists of two fortified  wings behind the Navy gate. Leaving the port Sqala, enter Moulay Hassan  square. Discover the kasbah, district surrounded by ramparts with  foundations anchored in the rock. Walk along the ramparts taking the  street that leads to the Sqala of the Kasbah, where the famous guns of  Essaouira line up. This place was chosen by Orson Welles to turn the  exterior sets of his Othello.

At the heart of the Kasbah, the Museum of Popular Arts and  Traditions is the mirror and the collective memory of the province of  Essaouira. You will discover the ritual or profane musical instruments  of the Aissaoua, Hamadcha and Gnaoua brotherhoods. Every year in June,  the world-renowned Gnaoua Festival of Essaouira.
