Resting on the banks of the seasonal Amerhidl River, in the Ouarzazate Province of Morocco, the town of Skoura is a beautiful palm-grove-lined oasis. Skoura boasts a multitude of Moroccan castles, vibrant souks, and lush palm, olive, fig, and almond groves. Skoura is set within the scenic Dades valley, which is also known as the ‘Valley of a Thousand Kasbahs’. This flourishing oasis is set in beautiful surrounds, which include the Atlas Mountains and vast open landscapes providing spectacular views. Visitors can look forward to visiting a wide selection of impressive sites including: the Marabout Sidi M’Barek, a magnificent pre-Islamic Muslim shrine; and the 17th-century Amerhidl Kasbah, a high-walled crenellated fortress known to be the largest kasbah in Skoura and one of the largest in Morocco. Other Kasbahs which are popular with visitors include: the Dar Ait Sidi el-Mati Kasbah, as well as the spectacular Amar and Ait Ben Abou Kasbahs.
