Ben Hamidouch Kasbah

The Ben Hamidouch Kasbah dominates the left bank of the Tensift oued. This kasbah was a major fortress built by sultan Moulay Ismaïl in the seventeenth century. The outer wall, flanked by bastions and crowned by barricades has tremendous allure despite the ravages of time. 150 m long on each of its four sides, it encloses a mosque and various ruined buildings. Another 70 m long enclosure is surrounded by a wide moat.
