We’ll pick you from your riad in Marrakech, head to the coastal town of Essaouira. We’ll drive on a plain area and exploring the Argan trees. Argan oil is a unique of its kind, used for cosmetics and food, and it is found nowhere else in the world, but in Souss area of Morocco. You’ll glance at several cooperatives producing this oil. Arriving in Essaouira, you’ll stop by the panoramic view over Mogador, a witness of the Portuguese existence in Morocco. Then, you’ll walk around the harbor, discovering the fisheries and the traditional boats.Another thing to see are the gunners residing by the bastion, where you’ll need to sit and enjoy the sound of waves. Back to Marrakech in the afternoon.
The present city of Essaouira was built during the mid-eighteenth century by the Moroccan King. Mohammed III tried to reorient his kingdom toward the Atlantic for increased exchanges with European powers, choosing Mogador as his key location. Essaouira served as Morocco’s principal port, offering the goods of the caravan trade to the world.
The medina is home to many small arts and crafts businesses, notably cabinet making and ‘thuya’ wood-carving, both of which have been practised in Essaouira for centuries. It is also a center of argan oil production. It has become a tourist attraction due to the tree-climbing goats who are unique to the region, as argan trees are the only type the goats climb. Culinary classes can also be offered.
