“I dreamed to visit them!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Essaouira, former called Mogador, is one of the most known Maroccan city and its walls are very impressive. You must climb on the ramparts to see an amazing sea and city landscape.

It is an easy walk around and makes some very nice photos. The views of the harbour and further afield is also wortwhile.

“Quite pretty, and pretty well kept”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

The ramparts are pretty cool, and create great views over the brilliant crashing waves, and the ramparts themselves have some awesome cannons on them, and are nice for a little walk, and get to look over the shops selling beautifully carved wooden sculptures from about, and so without any hassle from the venders.

“Breathtaking view from high up over the scariest sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Well worth a visit. The sea crashes like you have never seen sea crash. It's awesome! If you like city wall ramparts, canons, rocks waves, foaming sea fume, spray, heights, wind. These ramparts are blooming exciting and exhilarating. Not to be missed

“Beautiful view of the ocean.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This is a great place to take photos of the ocean. We were there at sunset as the waves crashed against the rocks. Truly a magical place. Take your camera.
