Holidays in Taroudant
With its majestic gold, pink and orange tinted circuit of high walls, Taroudant is half citadel and half oasis. It is a town of great charm and grace. The ruddy, clay houses, minarets and groves of oranges and pomegranates seem to drowse beneath the gaze of the frosted High Atlas to the north and the Anti-Atlas to the south.
The walls, the souks and the stark backdrop of the High Atlas are the towns main attractions and the best way to see the town is by horse-drawn carriage especially at dusk. The souks are not large but they are varied; there is a strong tradition of local craft and much of the work here is of outstanding quality.
Taroudant is only an hours drive from Agadir and its International airport and about three hours drive from Marrakech. It is worth hiring a car during your stay which will enable you to make your own excursions to the magnificent Glaoui Kasbah at Taliouine (50 miles); through the Anti Atlas Mountains to the oasis town of Tata; exhilarating surf beaches at Sidi Moussa; the walled town of Tiznit; the natural wonders of Tafraoute and of course there are the spectacular passes in the High Atlas within reach of Taroudant.
