The ” Square of death ” in Arabic, and no one really knows where this name came from. It is one of the mot famous and busiest sites in Morocco.

Essaouira, or Mogador, as it was called back in history is a beautiful breath taking coastal town located east of Marrakech. It is worth a 2 hours drive each way thanks to its Portuguese style fortifications, walled town, fishing port, art galleries, and above all, a well deserved seafood lunch.
