El Kelaa des Mgouna Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 34 photos
Kelaa-des-Mgouna is the centre of rose production, with two large factories for rose water. Every May, a Rose festival takes place here.
The process of making rose water is quite impressive. In order to make one single litre of rose water, it is needed about 3,000 kilo rose petals. In all of Kelaa-des-Mgouna there are 4,200 km of rose hedges, and all of this has the capacity of only 1,400 litre of rose water. So don't mind if it has a price.
El Kelaa is well known particularly for the manufacture of 'eau of roses', a perfume obtained from the distillation of petals of roses which grow abundantly here, hence giving the name to the valley where we are, 'The valley of roses'. This is also the origin of one of the most famous festivals in Morocco, 'The festival of roses'.
In El Kelaa you will find all the services and facilities you might need during your stay including banks, pharnacies, supermarkets, car rental services etc.
