CASABLANCA
ESSAOUIRA
Destination Info

Essaouira is a tourist town thanks to a mild climate, beautiful beaches, and historic monuments and sites. The medina was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001.
The city is also renowned for windsurfing and kitesurfing, with powerful winds that blow almost constantly in the bay.

In 1506, the Portuguese built a fortress there called ‘Castelo Real de Mogador’ but due to the resistance of the local population, the Portuguese left on the 4th December 1510, although despite being abandoned it remained protected by the Saadians during the seventeenth century.
In 1760, the sultan Mohammed III ordered the construction of the city and hired a French architect, Théodore Cornut. In 1775 the Sultan ordered the demolition of the Castello Real and the stones were later reused in the construction of the Port Sqala. Years later the city became one of Morocco’s main commercial centers. Until the 1960s, Essaouira was generally known as Mogador, the most likely theory is that the name comes from the Berber name ‘Mugadir’ which means ‘the one surrounded by ramparts’.
