Favorite thing: Old, uninhabited kasbah that has been used as set for some movie productions.

The ksar, a group of earthen buildings surrounded by high walls, is a traditional pre-Saharan habitat. The houses crowd together within the defensive walls, which are reinforced by corner towers.

To get there drive throug P31 and then turn on 6803. Leave the car on the bank of a small river, cross it and walk under the majestic mud arch that is the entrance of the city, then walk through its silent and narrow streets.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
