Taourirt Kasbah

At Ouarzazate the monumental Kasbah of Taourirt forms a fortified village which has maintained the unique atmosphere of a berber town with small shops, vegetable sellers and a maze of backstreets that provide a great place for discovery.

This sumptuous residence, with its crenellated façades, is proof that it was possible to build magnificent earth buildings. It was once the largest residence of the pasha of Marrakech. The refinement of the decoration and proportions of the edifice make this one of the finest examples of Moroccan architecture.
