Taroudant is approx 81 kilometres east of Agadir, located at the crossing of the Souss and High Atlas mountains. This 16th century town has ochre-coloured ramparts which offer shade and tranquility during the hot midday period. The town has an efficient bus service and a variety of local crafts workshops where you can observe people at work. Shop outlets sell Berber jewellery, pottery and textiles. A beautiful city similar to Marrakesh which is still a major market centre for local produce and with only 30,000 inhabitants, it need not rely on the tourist for its prosperity.
