An interesting place to visit if you are in Ouarzazate. A well-maintained (and restored) Kasbah where you can spend at least an hour here, walking from room to room. Unfortunately, again there is no written information provided as to what function each room had.

We had a guide meet our tour outside and conduct us through a fairly quick tour of Taourirt Kasbah filling us in on some of the history and architecture. Saw none of the private rooms, just through the maze of alleyways and the shops there in. Would have liked a more thorough tour given this Kasbah's history. Worth visiting if... More

An interesting history and well preserved Kasbah. It's a maze, so I advise a guide. They will also show you the old town. Nothing inside, but the tile work is lovely.

This place does not look as authentic as Ben Haddou but it's well kept and maintained better than the Ben Haddou. It has easier parking access and well maintained rooms. Great for taking pictures. If you are visiting the main town for an Saharan safari and have time at disclosure; do visit this place.

We enjoyed walking through this Kasbah for a little over an hour. The vendors are all the same. The colors, people are small town. The history is layer upon layer.

Immediately after you pay, you are accosted by a small gang of unofficial guides, who ask you repeatedly if you want a tour. They follow you wherever you go, asking in tag-team fashion if you want a tour. No? Are you sure? Are you sure? No? Are you sure? Maybe you want a tour? No? Are you sure? Whatever small... More

Well restored Kasbah, empty of furniture but with a very interesting architecture that make it worth visit. A guide charged us 10Eu for 4 persons visit (30-45min) which really helps imagining the glory times of the building.

They have really brought back the feeling that you are walking through history that the maze of alleys and stairs bings to you as you wander through this attraction.

Impressive large building made of a mixture of chalk and sand, There are stairwells leading into many rooms with low windows providing light and nice view over the rich Daraa valley. Some rooms have plaster work decoration featuring floral patterns. There are painters working in the Kasbah offering there work to the tourists. We did not manage to get to... More

We were fortunate that there was access to this kasbah, as we were told that it is often closed for use as a film location. There is a maze of stairwells which give access to both public and private areas. Such restoration as has been undertaken has been done sensitively. Well worth visiting if in the area.
