Kasbah of Tizourgane
On the way from Agadir, one of the most popular resort towns in southern Morocco, to Tafraoute, a tourist base in the Anti-Atlas Mountains, you will see a beautiful kasbah (fortress) perched atop a small mountain. The Kasbah of Tizourgane is a fortress village built by the Berbers to defend against enemies from the outside. It looks like a castle in the sky rising above the terraced fields, and is a great photo spot on the drive through the Anti-Atlas Mountains.
The Anti-Atlas Mountains lie about 500 km from the Atlantic Ocean to the northeast. Facing the High Atlas to the north and the Sahara Desert to the south, it has a Saharan climate with little rainfall. Traditional Berber towns are scattered throughout the region, and quaint fortresses, casbahs, with a sense of history remain here and there. The rows of sun-dried brick houses harmonizing with the desolate rocky mountains and earth show us the simple beauty of Morocco's original landscape.
