The Dades valley Excursion
Things to do in Skoura (Dades Valley):
A visit to the valley of the Dades starts at the fertile oasis of Skoura which is characterized by a beautiful palm grove. In this valley are charming villages and fortified buildings with decorated towers.
Around Skoura you encounter a surprising amount of roses cultivated against the verges. They are of the kind “Baldi,” a pretty strong smelling rose. From the leaves, rosewater is produced in a factory in El Kalat M’gouna, where there is a rose festival in April.
The oasis of Skoura has a few notable clay buildings, set against the beautiful backdrop of the High Atlas. Above Skoura, on the left side of the road, stands the 17th century Kasbah Ben Morro which is now restored into a hotel. Another impressive kasbah is Kasbah Amerhidil, which was owned by the Glaoui family. From this kasbah there is a magnificant view over the river. Further to the east lies Ait Abou which is constructed in 1968. The building consists of six floors and 25 m high walls.
