Essaouira's Medina has cobbled streets lined with white, blue doored buildings, that UNESCO has World Heritage listed, hiding the cafes and restaurants and craft stores and galleries it's loved by visitors for. The town centre has looked like this since the 18th Century, when it was built, and the whole town, with its fortified ramparts is one of the only of its kind that's survived to the modern day.

The wares the medina is most famous for are cabinets, boxes and carvings made from thuya wood and embroidered cloths and carpets.
