    Essaouira or Old Mogador is a large fishing port founded by the Romans and inhabited by the Portuguese from the 17th century. Because of the influences of the famous French architect “Vauban”, who designed the ramparts, the city becomes, nowadays, a town of artists.

    It is considered also as one of the most important and oldest fishing ports in Morocco, famous for local wood handicrafts, as there is a large plantation of cedar and pine trees nearby. Old Mogador profits from an extremely favorable microclimate which ensures a soft temperature in winter and fresh one in the summer.

    Charmante petite ville, Essaouira est l'ancienne cité portugaise de Mogador. Elle a été fortifiée par un architecte français adepte de Vauban. Ces influences ont donné un résultat unique et très attirant. Aujourd'hui, la cité devient peu à peu une ville d'artistes.

    Essaouira bénéficie d'un microclimat extrêmement favorable qui lui assure une température douce l'hiver et fraîche l'été. A signaler aussi une belle plage, protégée par les îles purpuraires.
    Les artisans d'Essaouira sont renommés pour la marqueterie sur racine de thuya et proposent une large gamme d'objets depuis le petit souvenir jusqu'aux pièces de mobilier et de véritables œuvres d'art.
