Ouarzazate Pictures, Photos & Images of Kasbah Taourirt { 129 images } Created 15 Sep 2013

Pictures, photos & Images of the above mud brick Berber Kasbah Taourirt, Ouarzazate, Morocco. Ouarzazate is an ancient city just to the south of the High Atlas mountains in central Morocco. It stands on a high desolate plateau guarding the entrance of the Ziz gorge, one of the main camel traders routes north across the Atlas mountains. Its position gained it the nickname “The door of the desert” and the name suits its dramatic adobe brick construction and Berber architecture of the famous Kasbah Taourirt of Ouarzazate very well. The Kasbah Taourirt is a stunning example of Berber architecture. Taourirt was one of the many Glaoui family strongholds and is one of the most beautiful Kasbah left standing in Morocco. The Glaoui family created a dynasty of powerful Lords who controlled the main camel route to Marrakech amassing a vast fortune from taxes levied on the goods that passed through their territories.
