Essaouira Things to Do: 197 reviews and 413 photos

This square, a bit neglected, clock tower looked at first very old and stood by main street of the old town and together with city walls and the sun was my good orientation point.

Essaouira was founded over 3000 years ago as a Phoenician trading post. But unfortunatelly there are no remainings of that old time. The city exisitng now is much younger. The ramparts were designed by French architects over 200 years ago.
