From the top of Skala you can see the colorful fishing port and Spanish fortresses and guns.
Essaouira is also famous for its fine handicrafts, especially wooden objects (tuya) perfectly interspersed with lemon wood, ebony, nacre or copper or silver threads. If you like fish, enjoy a meal in the port. Evening return to Marrakech.
