126.
View from the busstation in Essaouira


127.
Part of the old fort near the busstation



128.
One of the main streets in the town, most streets weren't paved and had gravel on them but that looked like a temporary solution untill they could pave them...



129.
Portugese influence is everywhere in this town and most old housing looked like being build in the period the purtugese came here.



130.


131.
