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 magnificent view of 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.
