A network of absorbing fortifications (seen in Game of Thrones), excellent little shops and great cafes and eateries in amongst nearby alleyways. I go back time and again - a working fishing port, absorbing historical attraction and fine place to eat, drink and unwind. Great

Beautiful view of the ocean and crashing waves on a historic wall or rampart. Canons surround the edge and there are lookout towers. This is to not to be missed if you're in Essaouira!

Lovely tranquil landscape. We were in a Riad at the very edge of the water close to the ramparts, just a short stroll away.

An interesting walk around Essaouira by following the ramparts. Lots of stalls and good natured hassle to buy goods though. It is worth the fee to go up the tower by the port (very small entrance fee)

loved walking along and around the ramparts great shops hidden away in alleyways and lots of restaurants overlooking them. Wish my son was still 4 he would have loved climbing on the cannons and looking out to see through the gaps in the ramparts
