Tucked deep within the Ameln Valley, the scenic little town of Tafraoute mesmerizes with the stunning contrast of verdant palm groves against red granite mountains. Lush oases with date palms and olive groves greet visitors, alongside iconic landmarks like Le Roche Bleu (The Blue Rocks), La Tete du Lion (The Head of the Lion) and agadirs or granaries located on the top of hills. Largely free from hustling guides and eager shopkeepers, Tafraoute is the perfect place to relax or explore at your own pace. Pamper yourself at the Old Hammam behind the main market, or wander through bustling Wednesday souk for local crafts in leather and wood as well as charming trinkets in silver. The town is also known for the rich flavors of Amlou, which you can sample while dining at its traditional restaurants.
