  • A beautiful well-maintained kasbah that tells the story of the town located in the middle of the medina with a panoramic view of the village

  • I'm going to do something I hate when others do it: to comment on something I haven't visited. I'm sorry for the inconsistency, but they've raised the price from 1 to 6 euros for no apparent reason, i think it's an attempt to swarm the tourist, and I don't like that. From what we saw as we looked at each other, it didn't seem to deserve that price while in Morocco. Now reading the comments we confirm it.
