The Ziz valley is home to hundreds of kasbah’s and ksar.
A ksar is a group of kasbahs, often fortified and protected by walls. Moroccan families would often co-inhabit these buildings, although due to buildings often being in states of disrepair, this tradition is slowly dying out.
The Ziz valley was once a passage for the Caravan routes linking sub-Saharan Africa to the Mediterranean. The valley boasts Palm trees and dates. Easily accessible from Erfoud, the valley can be entered at the “Source bleue de Meski”.
