Essaouira Ramparts, Essaouira

4.5
Exploring Essaouira Ramparts allows you to gain a fresh perspective on the city and survey the area from atop fortified walls that enclose a World Heritage-listed medina. Constructed in the 18th century to protect the seaport from attack, the walls remain remarkably well preserved, with many original features, such as the old city gates, sturdy sea walls, and towers. Admire the layout of the medina from above, and take in the dramatic view of the Atlantic Coast, with rocky outcrops, an offshore bird sanctuary, and little wooden fishing boats heading in and out. With our online itinerary creator, Essaouira attractions like Essaouira Ramparts can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
