"Ship building yard" Top 5 Page for this destination Essaouira Favorite Tip by JLBG

Essaouira General: 46 reviews and 59 photos


Favorite thing: The shipbuilding yard is really impressive. A dozen of traditional wooden boats are actually being built at the same time. The shipbuilders do not seam to use any drawing but to build following the tradition and by practice.

Review Helpfulness: 3 out of 5 stars
