The ubiquitous blue doors of Essaouira

There is something magical about Essaouira that sets it apart from other Moroccan cities.  From the palm-lined avenues of the fortified medina with it’s orderly labyrinth of alleyways, to the tranquil harbour where you can watch fishing nets being mended and traditional boats being built, to the most amazing sunsets, all while indulging in the best gelatto in Morocco. In winter 🙂

And then there are the doors – in every hue of blue you can imagine.  I found them absolutely captivating.
