For anyone interested in touring Morocco’s kasbahs or ksars, I highly recommend starting with Kasbah Taourirt, the Pasha Glaoui’s former palace in Ouarzazate. Kasbah Taorirt was built by the Pasha Glaoui. Its location was strategic for trading routes and in the 1930’s when the Glaoui ruled the South was then considered one of Morocco’s largest Kasbahs. Kasbah Taourirt was one of the places Glaoui kept his slaves. As a Moroccan traveler you can explore its nooks and crannies to discover its history and often local female painters who sell their art inside as well as the many quality silver shops just steps outside the Kasbah.

Traveling to Morocco guarantees one of the best vacation experiences of a lifetime. The people of Morocco are extremely hospitable and will guarantee a comfortable and fascinating travel adventure from the moment you step foot in the Maghreb. Moroccans by nature are open minded and willing to engage in conversation of all sorts. The current King Mohamed VI has made a political and social effort to ensure that Morocco is not seen as just another Muslim country. The Kingdom of Morocco, al-Mamlaka al-Maġribiyya, (in Arabic) has evolved immensely during previous years and is THE place to travel. Morocco has a rich agricultural tradition with it being a primary source for jobs and survival for the Moroccan people, especially the Berbers in the South and Atlas Mountain regions. It is also a country of cataclysmic beauty and contradiction. Morocco offers the widest variety of landscape and adventure for its size. Morocco has something for every one who desires a real Morocco Travel experience. From lush waterfalls at the foot of Cascades D’Ouzoud to a dry, mystical Sahara, a place to ski, Okamiden, just north of Marrakech and the seaside resorts of Agadir and Essaouira – Morocco Travel has it all.
