Details about Essaouira

 

Summary

 

 

 

 

English

 

Essaouira is an old city by the sea with a population of around 70,000 and therefore much smaller than Agadir; it is located about 200 km north of Agadir also at 3 hours from Marrakech. The name Essaouira is a diminutive and means wall. Until the 60s it had the Portuguese name Mogador; you will still find a lot of this name in the city.

Essaouira, like Agadir, is a fishing port where mainly sardine is caught. It is, just like Agadir and Marrakesh, an important tourist attraction.

Another important attraction of the city is the Medina with its numerous restaurants and shops. From the Medina you can walk to the beach or along the boulevard with numerous hotels and restaurants. Even in the evening and at night it is pleasantly busy in Essaouira.

On the road to Essaouira you will find many Argan trees. These trees only grow in south-west Morocco. The trees, when they are forty years old, produce fruit that contains hard pits that again contain seeds from which the argan oil is obtained. This oil is used for cosmetic or culinary purposes.

German

Essaouira ist eine alte Stadt am Meer mit einer Bevölkerung von etwa 70.000 und damit viel kleiner als Agadir; Es liegt etwa 200 km nördlich von Agadir, ebenfalls 3 Stunden von Marrakesch entfernt. Der Name Essaouira ist ein Diminutiv und bedeutet Wand. Bis in die 60er Jahre hatte es den portugiesischen Namen Mogador; Sie werden in der Stadt noch viel von diesem Namen finden.

Essaouira ist wie Agadir ein Fischereihafen, in dem hauptsächlich Sardinen gefangen werden. Es ist, genau wie Agadir und Marrakesch, eine wichtige Touristenattraktion.

Eine weitere wichtige Attraktion der Stadt ist die Medina mit ihren zahlreichen Restaurants und Geschäften. Von der Medina aus können Sie zu Fuß zum Strand oder entlang des Boulevards mit zahlreichen Hotels und Restaurants gehen. Auch abends und nachts ist es in Essaouira angenehm beschäftigt.

Auf der Straße nach Essaouira finden Sie viele Arganbäume. Diese Bäume wachsen nur im Südwesten Marokkos. Die Bäume, wenn sie dreißig Jahre alt sind, produzieren Früchte, die harte Samen enthalten, die wiederum Samen enthalten, aus denen das Arganöl gewonnen wird. Dieses Öl wird für kosmetische und kultologische Zwecke verwendet.

Nederlands

Essaouira is een oude stad aan zee met een inwoneraantal van zo'n 70.000 en dus veel kleiner dan Agadir; het ligt ongeveer 200 km ten noorden van Agadir ook op een 3 tal uren van Marrakech.  De naam Essaouira is een verkleinwoord en betekent muurtje of ommuring. Tot in de jaren '60 had het de Portuguese naam Mogador; deze naam vind je in de stad nog veel terug.

Essaouira is evenals Agadir een vissershaven waar voornamelijk sardine wordt gevangen. Het is evenals Agadir en Marrakesh een belangrijke toeristische trekpleister.  

Ook een belangrijke trekpleister van de stad is de Medina met z'n talrijke restaurantjes en winkeltjes. Vanaf de Medina kunt je te voet naar het strand of langs de boulevard met talrijke hotels en restaurants. Ook 's avonds en 's nachts is het gezellig druk in Essaouira.

Op de weg naar Essaouira vind je veel Argan bomen. Deze bomen groeien alleen maar in  zuid-west Marokko. De bomen produceren, als ze een jaar of dertig oud zijn, vruchten waarin harde pitten zitten die weer zaden bevatten waaruit de arganolie wordt verkregen. Deze olie wordt gebrukt voor cosmetische en culunaire doeleinden.
