Surrounded by olive trees, palms and sweet-smelling citrus groves, the walled city of Taroudant is a real gem. On your drive there, keep an eye out for the tree-climbing goats that call this part of the world home. Upon arrival, step inside this 11th-century citadel and prepare to be hurled back in time. Resting peacefully within its ramparts, Taroudant has avoided time’s march, retaining its traditional look and feel. Four miles of chunky walls encircle the city, pierced by five impressive gateways. Within them lie Taroudant’s most famous attractions, the daily Berber market and the Arab souk. Browse the stalls and snap up anything and everything from exotic spices to leather goods.
It's about a one-and-a-half-hour drive to Taroudant.
