Essaouira is a perfect example of a fortified city, built at the end of the 18th century, according to the principles of contemporary European military architecture in a North African context, and
perfect harmony with the precepts of architecture and Arab-Muslim urbanism. Since its creation, it has been an important international trading port, connecting Morocco and its Saharan hinterland with Europe and the rest of the world.
Its medina (old city), formerly named Mogador (name derived from the Phoenician word Migdol and meaning a small fortress), is surrounded by a wall inspired model Vauban.
