An alley in the souks of Essaouira

Essaouira - a??the jewel of the Atlantica?? - is a small fortified port in western Morocco on the same latitude as Marrakech, between Safi and Agadir.
This town was the setting for several scenes of the popular Game of Thrones and as Othello version of Orson Welles.
The Medina of Essaouira is a UNESCO World Heritage listed city, an example of a late 18th-century fortified town, as transferred to North Africa by European colonists.
The town-planning was entrusted to the Frenchman ThA©odore Cornut, disciple of Vauban, who gave the city its present look, building ramparts and straight, wide streets.
When entering in tle old Medina, you find yourself in the midst of an animated and joyful crowd, where everybody is going about his own business. There are no motor vehicles here, everything is carried by carts sometimes drawn by mules. What fascinates visitors are the white-washed house walls, the blue doors and windows which are reminiscent of Mediterranean islands. Owing to the straight main streets, you will have no problem finding your way and even if you get lost in the numerous small lanes, sooner or later you will find a main street again... or a dead-end
