Rissani Off The Beaten Path: 9 reviews and 38 photos
Beautiful circuit de touristique - a tar sealed route though narrow in places but very scenic and where many local people live and work so you not only see ruins of the ancient city of Sijillimassa that was here as an important trading centre for southern Morocco down through into the sub-sahara, but you also see the colours in the fields and of the people in them, the kasbahs and fortified villages where they live along the route, including Ksar Tinerhas which gives great views over the palmeraie and to the orange dunes of the nearby Merzouga sahara with Erg Chebbi.
The plateau below Ksar Tinerhas was also used to make several movies - as with many areas around here.
Stop along the way and generally will come running out from even nowhere to see you, say hello, see what you might have to give them - if you are lucky you will get some great photos.
There is a sign at the road that turns left after crossing the bridge out of Rissani towards Erfoud.
