"Jimi Hendrix came in July 1969, and spent 11 days in Essaouira.
He arrived in Casablanca, with a scheduled flight from Paris,
accompanied by two friends.He rented a limousine to leave the
airport and stayed in 3 different hotels, including "Hotel
des Iles" in Essaouira . He never tasted the cuisine of
"Chez Sam", as the restaurant did not exist in 1969. He
has not ever wanted to buy the village of Diabet, since there
would never be gone .. . And the song "Castles Made Of
" was released in 1967, two years before he arrived
in the city of trade winds."
