Just off the main road, with, as others say, the caretaker nearby who will unlock the building for you. Interesting and peaceful. Notice the owl up in the rafters if he/she is still there.

It's over an hour winding driving to get to Tin Mal from Imil. The scenery on the way is kind of interesting and there were a couple of abandoned kasbahs before you get to Tin Mal. The mosque is interesting but will not take take...More
