CASABLANCA – EL JADIDA – OUALIDIA – SAFI – ESSAOUIRA
This morning after a good breakfast we will head in the direction of El Jadida, port city of the Moroccan Atlantic coast, which was a Portuguese colony for two centuries. Its ancient fortification was named a World Heritage site by UNESCO and is a mixture of Moroccan and Portuguese, we can visit this small fortified city facing the sea, walk by its small and quiet citadel and its long beach, then continue toward Oualidia; a picturesque resort located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and surrounded by many lakes which provide its unique natural surroundings and is located in a small elevation from where you can still see some vestiges of the kasbah built in 1634. Its greatest attraction is its lagoon with a length of 12 km, bordered by sandy beaches and dunes, a landscape truly worthy of viewing.
We will continue towards the very industrial port city of Safi; one of the most important fishing ports of the coast, as any good coastal city, Safi also offers us great beaches and a rich tourism heritage as its medina is marked with a traditional character that is no longer visible in other cities. Arrival in Essaouira where we will make our first contact with this small fishing village
Throughout the day we visit the great city of Marrakesh in the hands of a local guide to discover its fascinating history through the famous Koutoubia, Bahia Palace, the Saadian Tombs and the Menara Gardens. You can eat at a typical restaurant in the medina (to be paid for by the client) and the afternoon will be free to discover for yourselves the charms of this city, to walk through the streets of the medina, get lost in its immense market or savour traditional Moroccan food in the Djemma el-Fna Square. Visiting this city means being able to observe the essence of Morocco which is always in constant change. The former beauty of the city is still alive today, with the smell of fresh mint, the tastiest spices and the sound of the snake charmers and the hustle and bustle of its impressive souk, the largest in all of Morocco. Marrakech is all this and much more; the capital of the south and the epicenter of tourism and handicrafts. The main focal point of the city is the medina, the souk and its beautiful Djemaa-El Fna Square, tourists often lose themselves in the Medina, it is very common, but this, as opposed to medinas as big as the one in Fes, involves no risk. In its alleys, the traveller will find shops of the most varied products, as well as food stalls where the traditional snail soup is served and if you are attracted by the intense smell of the mint, you will reach a stall full of fascinating herbs. The alleyways of the Medina all lead to the Djemma el-Fna Square. This is a very busy square, sometimes overwhelming to those who are visiting for the first time. But it is a magical place and without doubt, it is difficult to stop only for a short time. In the morning the square is full of stalls selling juice and dried fruit then in the evening jugglers, magicians, snake charmers and storytellers take over. This square has recently been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Accommodation in Marrakech.
