Inside its white-washed medina with blue doors lies a city that has been influenced by various cultures (Berber, Carthaginian, Portuguese, English and others).  It was the Jewish traders who once formed the majority of the population and transformed Essaouira into what became Morocco's most prosperous city in the 17th and 18th centuries.  Today it's more for surfers and tourists looking for a chilled out experience.
