Tamnougalt Kasbah Marokko

In the Tamnougalt Kasbah in the Draa Valley: The partially restored ruins of the "Kasbah of Tamnougalt", also known as the "Kasbah des caïds", are located four kilometres south of Agdz on a rocky spur on the left bank of the Drâa.

The village was located on the caravan road that led from Fez via Marrakech to Timbuktu. The fortress was built in the 16th century to protect Tamnougalt from looters using stones, adobe bricks and clay. From the Kasbah you have a magnificent view of the Drâa valley. | Morocco
