What You'll Do
  • Walk along the beautiful fishing port and the city's maze-line medina
  • Visit the great Moulay El-Hassan Square and the Grand Mosque
  • Admire the fascinating array of goods at the local museum
Overview
Leave Marrakech behind for the day and explore the ancient city of Essaouira, once a Portuguese harbor town. Visit the city's Grand Mosque, admire the fascinating collection at the Museum Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdallah, and tour the city's Jewish "mellah."
What to Expect
Once a Portuguese harbor city, and a Phoenician and Roman city before that, the now-Moroccan city of Essaouira has an incredibly rich political and cultural history. Take a day out of your vacation in Marrakech to explore this fascinating place and the remnants of its various civilizations that still remain. Walk from the loading docks of the port across the small bridge that leads to Skala Port and the ramparts that cut the old city into several districts. As you pass through the medina, visit the great Moulay El-Hassan Square, and marvel at the Grand Mosque and the Siaghine Alley along the way.

As you leave the confines of Skala, you will follow Derb Laalouj street all the way to the Museum Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdallah, where local musical instruments, Berber Imazighen documents, archaic weapons, elaborate costumes, and woven carpets are displayed in the former residence of the Pasha. Continue north to the city "mellah," or the walled Jewish quarter of the city, and wander through its bordering market filled with various goods before you head back to Marrakech.
