The departure to this exotic city at 8 :00 am, you’ll have tree principal stops to figure out some important locations on the way. First stop, you Will enjoy the views of the argan trees while the ghost on them And then you Will discover How the Moroccan women make argan oil by visiting the female cooperative of argan oil. After harvesting the fruits from the Argan Trees they are dried and the thick peel removed, the inner flesh is also removed by hammering with a large flat stone. I decided to have a go and sat at a stone block; I removed the outer layer fairly easily – the nut inside was the size and colour of an acorn but incredibly hard. The next stage involves cracking the nut to release the small soft almond-like kernels. It’s not easy – they’re hard nuts to crack without whacking a thumbnail, And this will to be your second stop on the way to Essaouira.
The third stop will be in the incredible panoramic view before you reach the portfish where you Will be free to discover the city the way you want.
The Medina of Essaouira, formerly named Mogador (name originating from the Phoenician word Migdol meaning a « small fortress »), is an outstanding example of a fortified town of the mid-eighteenth century, surrounded by a wall influenced by the Vauban model. Constructed according to the principles of contemporary European military architecture, in a North African context, in perfect harmony with the precepts of Arabo-Muslim architecture and town-planning, it has played a major role over the centuries as an international trading seaport, linking Morocco and sub-Saharan Africa with Europe and the rest of the world. The town is also an example of a multicultural centre as proven by the coexistence, since its foundation, of diverse ethnic groups, such as the Amazighs, Arabs, Africans, and Europeans as well as multiconfessional (Muslim, Christian and Jewish).
