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.

Beautifully preserved kasbah. We were lucky that not that many tourists were here, so we had a nice Walk through the little streets up to the hill. We paid 10dh at the gate next to the river.

We crossed the river to climb through the KSAR, and one of the party missed the stepping stone and got extremely wet foot and muddy shoe. The KSAR was filled with artefacts and trinkets to buy. At the top the wind was blowing so fast...More
