But Saadians grabbed it back in 1541 not knowing that trade was soon to be diverted elsewhere, so Sultan Sidi Mohammed ben Abdallah got a French architect to built a city in the middle of the sand and wind in 1764. Renaming it Essaouira (meaning well desinged), the sultan was pleased with the combined Moroccan and European influences it produced.
