Destinations' overview of private day trip from Marrakech to Essaouira:
Essaouira, located west of the Moroccan region of Marrakech-Asfi, is an extraordinary city built on the principles of European military architecture. The city is brimming with entrepreneurs, eager to share its culture and diversity with the rest of the world.
Because of its location on the Atlantic coast, it has been a key international commercial harbor since its inception. It also connects Morocco to Europe and the rest of the world.
Essaouira’s bright and dazzling city boasts a lovely port and a broad, breezy beach with a magnificent outlook. Today, the city is thriving, serving as a stunning example of a rare, well-preserved mid-18th-century secure seaport town.
The town is known as Tassort, which means “small fortress” in the Berber language, which is widely spoken in the city. This name was used before the official name, Essaouira, became known.
On the other hand, the Portuguese referred to it as Mogador until the 1960s. Essaouira became the city’s official name.
