This is arguably the best gallery in Essaouira for local art and artists in a small coastal town filled with talent.

That's very lovely gallery, free to entrance, offering nice look into the Essaouira's art presentation with a bit of touch of Gnauwa culture. Interesting to see, possible to buy and they have also choice of quite interesting books. Worth to stop by.

We wandered round this part of town and it was most interesting. There are lots of small shops selling artefacts. There is a post office and lots of art galleries and arty things to purchase. The whole area is very respectful respectable and relaxed, no one is at you to buy a single thing...how pleasant is that. In one gallery... More

We enjoyed this Art Gallery very much. Lots of interesting locally produced art pieces. We ended up buying a vibrant oil piece. It nows hangs beautifully in our NYC apt. We love it!

Many local artists are represented and shown in a meaningful way. Though some of the artists are represented by several galleries, the Damgaard was one of the nicer ones.
