Tafraoute is an oasis town nestled in the mountains of the Anti-Atlas Mountains. Surrounded by granite rocks, the town is lined with pink-walled buildings and decorated with green palms and cacti. The quiet and serene atmosphere of this small town is a base for exploring the various shaped rocks and villages with traditional style houses that are unique to the area, which is said to be the center of the Berber people.
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.
