Excursion from Marrakech to Essaouira
Essaouira has long been considered as one of the best anchorages of the Moroccan coast. The bay at Essaouira is partially sheltered by the island of Mogador. During the 16th century, various powers including Spain, England, the Netherlands and France tried in vain to conquer the locality. Essaouira remained a haven for the export of sugar molasses and the anchoring of pirates.
The actual city of Essaouira was only built during the 18th century. Mohammed III, wishing to reorient his kingdom towards the Atlantic for increased exchanges with European powers, chose Mogador as his key location. He hired a French engineer, Théodore Cornut, and several other European architects and technicians, to build the fortress along modern lines. Originally called "Souira", "The small fortress", the name then became "Es-Saouira", "The beautifully designed". The city itself is a mixed of Jewish and Moroccan architecture.
