Introduction to Essaouira

By way of introduction to the fortified harbour town of Essaouira on Morocco’s Atlantic coast, here are a couple of shots of the late 18th century walled medina which, in 2001, was added to Unesco’s list of World Heritage Sites. In stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, Essaouira has a charming and relaxed atmosphere that make it a joy to explore.
