Marrakech (arrival) – Essaouira (180 km)
Reception at the airport and departure towards Essaouira. The vegetation changes as you travel along the road: vineyards, olive groves and finally the Argan trees. This plant is present only in Morocco and its fruit produces an oil with multiple healing and aesthetic properties. Overcome Chichaoua, first a straight, then a curve, again a straight and suddenly the ocean. From the hills surrounding the city of Essaouira you can admire the bay in which it lies. You arrive at the hotel / riad and in the afternoon you can start exploring the medina, a UNESCO heritage site, surrounded by high walls worn by the salt and wind. The city was endowed by the Portuguese, in the 16th century, with a real fortress equipped with ramparts set in rocks beaten by ocean waves. The atmosphere is suggestive. Overnight in riad.
