Once called Mogador due to its occupation by the Portuguese in the 15th century, it became Morocco's main port a few centuries later where the gold, precious wood and slaves were leaving the continent through its ships. The black slaves left their music behind and its streets still resonate with the hypnotic rhythms of Gnawa and local people still talk about the brief visit of a certain Jimi Hendrix in the 70's. Some of the scenes from 'Alexander' and 'Kingdom of Heaven' were shot here and Orson Welles spent 3 years on and off location shooting his famous 'Othello'. It is an ideal place to relax, wander on the beach and admire the different crafts and activities. Essaouira's real strength comes from the fact that tourism hasn't yet spoiled the town, which remains a hive of activity where fishermen and boat builders get on with their daily activities as they have done for centuries. In the afternoon we recommend visiting the 2 Skalas (sea bastions) : Skala de la Ville and Skala du Port with their impressive collection of 18th century European brass canons.
