What to Expect
Essaouira is the region's prime attraction. It first attracted international attention when, Orson Welles chose it as location for his 1952 film of Othello. It lies beneath low Mediterranean-type hills, carved up into small stony fields dotted with olive trees and thorny argans. Designed by a European engineer, a captive of the Sultan Mohammed Ben Abdullah, Essaouira has wider, more regularly shaped streets than is usual in Moroccan medinas. As you leave the confines of Skala, you will follow Derb Laalouj street to the Museum Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdallah. Here musical instruments, local andalusian songs, Berber Imazighen documents, weapons, costumes, carpets, and more is displayed in the former residence pf the Pasha. Located in the north of the city is the "Mellah" . this Jewish Quarter is crossed by the traditional Rue Mohammed Zerktouni. It is bordered by a market that extends to Bab Doukkala. During your stay, you will also be able to enjoy beautiful beaches full of sun year-round !
