Description:

Essaouira was discovered by the Phoenicians who settled there. Then it was conquered by Rome and Portugal. Before the end of the 15th century, the Portuguese had built the commercial and military port of Mogador (today’s Essaouira). This port is located at the foot of the city walls.

From the terrace of the North bastion, you have access to the marquetry district where the best craftsmen work with cedar. Leaving the Skala, we follow Derb Laalouj street to the Sidi Mohammed Ben Mohammed Ben Abdallah museum where there is a collection of musical instruments for local Andalusian songs, weapons, costumes…

To the north of the city is Mellah, the Jewish quarter which crosses the traditional Mohammed Zerktouni Street. A market borders it which extends to Bab Doukkala…

Fish lunch (Essaouira specialties) in a seaside restaurant.

On the way we will cross numerous fields of Argan trees, trees which produce the nuts which will be used to make the famous Argan oil used both in cooking and for cosmetic products. You will have the chance to see goats perched on the argan trees… And visit a real women’s cooperative which produces real Argan oil.
