Essaouira is a city full of culture: it houses various small art galleries, which can be found all over the town.
Mogador, which was the former name for Essaouira’s Medina, is listed among the UNESCO World Heritage’s cities, and it can be held as an example of a late 18th-century fortified town, as transferred by European colonists to North Africa.
It also offers many small arts and crafts businesses, especially cabinet making and ‘thuya’ wood-carving (using Tetraclinis tree’s roots), both of which have been practiced in Essaouira for centuries.
