Essaouira, port city of the Atlantic coast, called Amogdul (the well-kept) in the Berber language, probably for being so well protected thanks to its long walls.
Essaouira has an exotic and at the same time familiar look, accompanied by the incessant squawks of the seagulls that fly over the city. At first it may seem that you are in a city of French Brittany, however, once you cross its walls it is an infinitely Moroccan city.
Its medina is a UNESCO world heritage site. Walking through its endless white streets transports you to another time in a scenario where nothing has changed. Strolling around we find the old Portuguese canyons aligned on battery in front of the Atlantic Ocean. Its walls protected the troops of Sultan Sidi Mohamed Ben Abadía and later Orson Welles used them as a stage to shoot his movie “Othello”.

The predominant color of this port is blue, since according to experts and fishermen, sardines are best tricked and that facilitates their capture. and thus, improve the catch of the day.
