Editorial

Welcome to the site essaouira.nu!

The illustrated content on this site , give the possibilty to learn more about Essaouiran nature, culture and history. Hopefully an appetizer for further exploration of the wondrous town Essaouira - Mogador and its regions.

This site is not mobile friendly so its ranking on Google is very bad. Our intension was not to score high rankings - its not a quick fix for information. It's just working best on a desktop computer. But we are working on it. :-)

 

www.essaouira.nu

The site essaouira.nu is promoting Eco Friendly tourism which means that focus is on learning about the historical and cultural heritage and also create awareness about the fragil eco system of Essaouira. It means coming closer to the nature, closer to the people and their culture. But also to understand and interact with the environment in a respectful way and showing insight.

 

The purpose with the site essaouira.nu is:
        • Documentation of contemporary life but also targeting
          historical artefacts in Essaouira and regions.
        • To illuminate Moroccan culture in general by focusing
          on ethnographics, traditions and Islam.
        • To provide information and documentation about interesting places
          to visit in order to learn about the nature, history and culture.
        • Providing external links for further studies on the subject,
          forums for discussion and links for references.
        • To give information in English.

The content is under continuous editing and research for educational purposes.
Use of content should be with link or reference to source.
The pictures are protected by copyright laws. See License

The selection of topics is not covering commercial interests such as buying property (houses, riads and appartments )
nor is it intended to be an up-to-date touristguide.

The content is non political - not relating to or motivated by any local or national politics.
The content is also non religious - only nominally or culturally affiliated to religious traditions, and the superstitious to expand our understanding of the Moroccan cultural specificity.

The editorial staff disclaims all liability for information on this site. See Disclaimer.
