Built at the end of the 18th century, it is the historic heart of the city and the main center of activity with the port. Surrounded by a Vauban-style wall, the Medina is protected by fortifications where the European style blends harmoniously with the Arab-Muslim style. The Sqala de la Kasbah is an example accessible and open to the public of these fortifications where the walls are still under attack from the ocean. Inside, the maze of alleys divides the districts and the various souks. Fairly organized despite everything, the souk offers all types of products. Clothing rubs shoulders with spices, necklaces, bracelets and other items follow olives and other fruits and vegetables. There are many restaurants where the fresh fish caught in the morning is cooked for lunch or dinner. Many other typical dishes are also offered and it is good to stop on a terrace, in the refreshing shade of the trees. The Medina was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001.
Located near the Marrakech gate of the old Medina of Essaouira, this traditional riad of 92 m² is built on three levels.
