Interesting view of the bombadrment and landing of the French troops on the island of Mogador, off the Coast of Morocco and opposite the city of Essaouira, on April 14, 1844.


The earliest recorded contact with the isalnd was by the Carthaginian navigator Hanno, who visited and established a trading post in the area in the 5th century BC. 

Roman merchants settled in the island and established a small fortified settlement, which may have been the starting point for Roman merchants sailing to the Cape Verde islands and the Gulf of Guinea.  

In 1844, the French Navy besieged the island, and it fell to the French in France's bombardment of Mogador.
