Essaouira (Berber:Mugador), formerly known as Mogador, is a city in the western Moroccan economic region of Marrakesh-Safi on the Atlantic coast. The modern name means "the little rampart", a reference to the fortress walls that still enclose part of the city.
Beginning in the late 1960s, Essaouira became something of a hippie hangout. Despite common misconception, Jimmy Hendrix's song "Castles made of sand" was written in 1967, two years before he visited the castles of Essaouira. Cat Stevens also spent some time in Essaouira.
