Although a relatively small medina, it is still quite easy to escape the crowds and journey into the unspoiled parts of Essaouira. Getting a little lost down a quiet alley will inevitably have you running into a group of kids playing, peaking into...

Essaouira, Morocco

Palais des remparts hôtel - 18 rue Ibn Rochd - Essaouira (médina), Essaouira 44000, Morocco
On the water is an old fort where artists bring their wears for sale. Bargaining is the way of the world here. I bought some amazing hand painted dishes my favorite leather belt and don't forget to pick up some argan oil here.
