Quiet and nice town with a long history and beautiful crafts. Tamegroute was a major hub of Sufi knowledge and wisdom. You can still feel the vibe when sitting at a cafe and casually conversating with friendly locals. The potters are among the best in...More

Tamegroute is a small town with numerous shops, many of which specialize in the local "green" pottery. Apparently the pottery gets its color during the firing process, where a local plant that grows along the riverbeds is used. Other than the shops--many of which are...More
