We had a stop for about 30 to 40 mins to have a look around this Kasbah. Very interesting. And the guide was very knowledgable on the history. The artefacts were really fascinating. Finished off with mint tea. Recommended.

This kasbah near the small town of Skoura in the Saharan Desert was the best that I visited while in Morocco. Unlike many other kasbahs on the typical tourist route across this stretch of the desert, such as at Ait Benhaddou and at Ouarzazate, Amridil...More
