    A dam was built on the Bin-el-Ouidane River, forming a 3,755 ha reservoir that brightens up the surrounding mountainous terrain. This impressive piece of engineering, 133m tall and 285m long at the top, produces electricity and irrigates the Tadla Pl..

  • 2 Jbel Toubkal Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    MA - Imlil

    Jbel Toubkal (4,167m) is the highest summit in North Africa, and thus in the High Atlas where it lies. The bravest - and most experienced - can scale its dark and austere granite slopes starting from Imlil. The hike takes more than 15 hours in all. B..

  • 4 Tinmel Mosque Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    MA - Tinmel

  • 5 Taourirt Kasbah Recommended Recommended

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Avenue Mohammed V MA - Ouarzazate

  • 6 Jbel Zagora Panorama Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    MA - Zagora

    Jbel Zagora affords a really interesting panorama. Going northwest to southeast, you can just make out the meandering Draa, nearly always hidden by the greenery of the palm branches and gardens, dotted with ksour. The fine ksar surrounded by dunes to..

  • 7 Tafilalt Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    MA - Erfoud

    It's thanks to the presence of the Rheris and the Ziz Rivers that here, on the edge of the desert, extends the vast Tafilalt palm grove, about a hundred kilometres south of Errachidia. Sedentary people and nomads live here thanks to the 900,000 date ..

  • 8 Erg Chebbi Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    MA - Merzouga

    Starting in Erfoud, after many kilometres of stony desert making for a rather harsh landscape, one is struck by the lushness of the pink and golden sand dunes of Erg Chebbi. This is the only erg (dune sea) in the Moroccan Sahara. It stretches from no..

  • 10 Figuig Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    MA - Figuig

    Figuig, in the eastern tip of Morocco far from the usual tours, is one of North Africa's most famous oases and has preserved all its charm and authenticity thanks to that isolation. At an altitude of 900m, it is on the edge of a depression at the foo..

  • 11 Jaffar Cirque Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    MA - Midelt

    Getting to Jaffar Cirque requires an effort. The extremely rough track from Midelt can only be driven on in a 4x4, in the summer, and you'll have to inquire about its condition. Access via Jaffar Gorge is less problematic. But the site is awesome. At..

  • 12 Todra Gorge Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    MA - Tinerhir

    Todra Gorge, northwest of Tinerhir, is an expression of nature at its most beautiful. This excursion, first driving and then hiking, is a must. The abrupt red rock walls plunge down into the river, hard put to flow here due to the narrow passage. Leg..

  • 13 Dades Valley Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    MA - Tinerhir

    Going from oasis to oasis between Tinerhir and Ouarzazate, the road runs through magnificent untamed and solitary landscapes. Rugged at first, they become more gentle farther on, often tormented, sometimes pacified, and are surrounded by mountains wh..

    Nature and gardens

    MA - Tafraoute

  • 15 Ait-Mansour Gorge Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    MA - Agard-Oudad

    Following the road heading south from Tafraoute, the amazing boulders here that were painted by Jean Vérame on the Painted Rocks site (4 km south of Agard) don't prepare you for the chaos of Ait-Mansour Gorge. Here the Sidi Mansour River carved out i..

  • 16 Oudaia Kasbah Recommended Recommended

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Rue Jamaa MA - Rabat

    A defensive fortress and observation post when it was built in the 10C, the kasbah occupies a dominant position. Past the splendid Oudaia Gate, a magisterial entrance, you reach a complex of whitewashed houses crossed by Rue Jamaa, which stops at the..

  • 17 Attarine Medersa Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    R. Talaa Kebira MA - Fès

    You can't help but be impressed by the virtuosity of the decoration in the Attarine Medersa, another treasure left by the Marinids. The zellige tiles, sculpted wood and finely worked plaster are a delight to the eyes. This medersa was built in the 14..

    Religious buildings
