The Anti Atlas
The Anti-Atlas is an almost secret region of southern Morocco. In its lunar landscapes spring oases, isolated villages and Berber traditions are preserved intact. In the heart of the Anti-Atlas, villages of adobe and stone in shimmering colors are built in the middle of palm groves. Here, winter is mild and the light highlights the contrasts of an unknown Morocco with the scent of almond trees. Tazenakht is known for its artisanal wealth and in particular the manufacture of rugs. Nicknamed "the little Marrakech", Taroudant is a little away from tourist circuits, although very picturesque with its belt of ramparts and hundred-year-old ocher-red walls surrounded by gardens, eucalyptus, olive trees, pomegranates, and of palm trees. Its souks, comparable to labyrinths, are among the most impressive markets in southern Morocco.
