    Emeraude Hotel

    by

    This hostel is located inside the medina. Very easy to find it.

    Unique Quality: Rooms are small but very clean. You can eat at the hostel if you ask to the reception in the morning. Not very interesting because it is quite expensive compare to the restaurant, so it is better to go outside !

Name of a Gnaoua Band

by steegho

I saw a fantastic live band at the Taros Cafe on New Years Eve (2007/8). Does anyone know the name of the band? EarthFlyer has posted a picture of them.

Re: Name of a Gnaoua Band

by RachelBlech

Try contacting the Cafe Taros directly: E-mail: alainfillaud@yahoo.fr or Tél.: 00 212 44 47 64 07. There are loads of Gnawa musicians in Essaouira, so could have been a group just brought together for the event, rather than an established band. Also try contacting the Association Essaouira Mogador who bring cultural events to the city such as the Gnawa Music Festival and many other festivals. Tel/fax : +212 (0)24 47 52 68 E-Mail : essmog@menara.ma
Good luck

Travel Tips for Essaouira

Sold out !

by JLBG

Each of them is already sold and bears the name of its owner, or may be its owner builds it. The new boats are exactly alike the ones which are in use for fishing. The building technique has not evolved.

Street Art

by windcity

During Gnaoua festival 2009 these art works appeared around the Medina, They are quite hidden so if you like a challenge, try to find them !
They are by Christian Guémy aka "C215" who apparently is a well known French street artist, I'd never heard of him but after googling I discovered a huge body of very interesting work...

a charming place

by iwys about Restaurant les Alizes

Restaurant les Alizes is a charming little place run by a husband and wife. The DH85 set menu includes the best tajines I tasted anywhere in Morocco. Wine is served. This place fills up soon after the doors open, mostly with French couples, so it is advisable to make a reservation.

Essaouria fishing port

by Beefy_SAFC

I commented that Essaouira was a key fishing port on the Moroccan coast and the port area was a constant hive of activity with catches seemingly being constantly landed. It's possible also for tourists to sample the produce, including not just the normal fish catches, but also invertebrates such as lobster and squid. Look for the open air stalls outside the harbour area or alternatively, enjoy the comfort of the more expensive restaurants in town. The local cats also get to grab the odd free sample.

I wonder how the Moroccans will fare with the reduction in fish stocks in the North Atlantic, with the European Union countries to the north one by one being forced to cut back on fishing quotas. As Morocco is not in the European Union, they may well be in a position to take advantage in the very short term. However, if activities continue unchecked then even here, there will be a downturn which will have adverse effects on the local economy. Tourism does partially fill the gap, but not completely.

walled town with interesting gates

by angiebabe

The 'old' walled medina of Essouira with its white houses and blue doors, narrow streets and ornately decorated arches is one of the cleanest and brightest medinas in Morocco. and surprisingly by Moroccan standards not old at all with the town being built only 250 years ago.
(though thats a lot older than our New Zealand!)

With ramparts already in place providing fortifications from the sea Essouira was an ideal place for the Alouite ruler Mohammed ibn Abdallah who needed in the mid 18th century a southern base from which to counter any possible revolt from Agadir. The sultan commissioned a french architect to design a port and a town.

The outer walls facing the sea are typical of european fortifications whereas the inner walls which have square crenallations are Islamic in style.
