THE ROUTE OF THE THOUSAND KASBAHS
To visit Kasbahs transformed into museums, to make a circuit seeing Kasbahs, to stay in a Kasbah, books about Kasbahs, possibilities of buying a Kasbah...
The route of the thousand Kasbahs is currently one of the main attractions of Morocco. It's integrated, indeed, by more than a thousand of these monuments. However, most travelers roaming the area only get to see half a dozen of them, the most famous, those that are in all the brochures.
The purpose of this website is to inform visitors wishing to delve into the subject of traditional earthen architecture the immense possibilities offered by southern Morocco.
Its author, Roger Mimó, is convinced that the promotion of the sustainable tourism in presaharic valleys is the best way to safeguard the Ksour and Kasbahs, which are now endangered because of neglect by the inhabitants of origin.
Our proposal includes a basic route by asphalt (in red on the map) and some possible variants or excursions by tracks (in green). We take Marrakech as starting point because it's the main airport in the region, but you can also fly to Ouarzazate or you can travel overland from Europe.
We divided the course in 9 steps, which not necessarily should occupy an entire day each one:
1. From Marrakech to Ouarzazate and Skoura
