The Portuguese founded the Essaouira Medina in Morocco in the 15th century, but nothing remains from those times. The medina that exists today is the result of the reconstruction of the city at the end of the 18th century. This work in Medina of Essaouira was carried out by European architects. The result was a city that combines Islamic and Western elements. We organize the perfect Essaouira day trip from Marrakech that you can book through this website.
