Essaouira, a city on the Atlantic coast, has been known as a good port since B.C. It was founded in the 18th century by the current dynasty as the closest port city to Marrakech, based on a fortress built by the Portuguese in the 16th century. In addition to the beauty of the old town with its rows of white houses facing the blue sea, the lively fishing port and beaches with a wide range of activities attract travelers with a variety of attractions.
