Visit to the Souk

Life in the mountains relies upon the purchase & sale of provisions in the nearest weekly market (“souk”). The souk also gives a social occasion to villagers from far-flung communities who meet to share news. Kasbah Angour’s local souk is held on a Tuesday, in the village of Tahanaout just 5 km away. The souk experience is quite unlike shopping in a Western market and is an excellent introduction to the Moroccan Berber way of life.We organise guided visits to the TuesdayTahanaout souk by car, typically in the morning. A visit to the souk can also be combined with a visit by car to Sidi Fares, Oukaimeden or the Ourika Valley (see Mountains by Car excursions). Please also enquire about visiting the Saturday Asni souk.
