Our tour group stopped for about an hour to tour this kasbah. We had a local tour guide who took us through restored areas of the old palace. Like all of the other kasbahs / palaces I have visited the rooms were bare. Our guide explained that there was not furniture used - just many rugs on the floors. He also explained that the restored rooms reflected their original appearance. This was what I found most interesting about this kasbah. As can be seen in the pictures I have included, the wall and ceiling decorations were very interesting.

This sight of historical interest is the former el Glaoui palace, now the Taourirt Kasbah and was along a major caravan route. Built in the 19th century, the palace has close to 300 rooms and within the kasbah were more than 20 riads, or houses. You can only enter the former palace from the main entrance and you pay a small fee for a guided tour. Our guide was very funny and entertaining. Views from upstairs affords fabulous views of the remainder of the kasbah and offers wonderful picture opportunities. There is a small shop on the mezzanine level where local artists show their work. I like to support local talent, so purchased a unique painting in mixed media.

Take a guided tour. There is no furniture or furnishings, but you really get an idea of how the extended family lived here. You can just imagine the caravans of camels coming in for the night. Quite a few steps.

Taourirt Kasah is a worth visit if you have time because there are others Kasbahs much bigger and more authentic. This is Kasbah represent some history of Thami el Glaoui and his famly how the family used to control the area but not is opned for public.

An 18 th century Kasbah, still standing . Majestically built . A historic site and if you have never seen a Kasbah than pay a visit to this one . The road from erfoud to Quarzazate is called “ the road of a 1001 Kasbah’s” but all are in a sense of neglect and mostly in ruins . This one has stood the test of time .
