The Taourirt Kasbah

Located at just 1 km from Ouarzazate, you will find a very old construction, wonderful and surprising at the same time. It is the Taourirt Kasbah, often compared to a gigantic sand castle.


Taourirt Kasbah


It is no wonder that it ended up being part of the World Heritage List of UNESCO: the Taourirt Kasbah is an architecture masterpiece from the Berber culture. Built in the 17th century by the Glaoui tribe, it is made up of straw and earth, and has lots of decoration. The cedar ceilings are often referred to because of their beauty. The entrance of the Kasbah is charged but tours are organised from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and this is a must see.
