Every North African town has a kasbah, a traditional administrative building made from mud and straw. This one, nestled against the High Atlas Mountains, is among the most impressive of its kind.

Yes, there are a lot of tourists and souvenir stands. But this is a cool kasbah. A climb to the top will provide great panoramas of the stunning countryside. It costs 20 dh per person to enter, though I’m not sure whether the guy collecting...More

We stayed nearby and enjoyed walking over, across the river and past the Kasbahs to the top of the hill. There was a picture worthy scene around every corner and I enjoyed looking at and buying the local merchandise. Well worth a visit.

An incredibly beautiful multifaceted jewel of desert archtecture. We liked the outside and its views best. The vendors along the way were not pushy at all.

This was a great place to visit. We were part of a tour group and our guide gave us a lot of interesting information. The walk to the top is a little challenging but the view makes it well worth it.

The is a UNESCO site but I did not notice a lot of signage. There is a short steep-ish climb to the top with many vendors along the way. It's worth the effort for photos. And a nice selection of artwork.

There aren't a lot of options for food, accommodation or activities in the town in my opinion, so since you have a car I'd recommend a day trip to visit the site. The climb to the top isn't very difficult/long for someone of... More
