Information about Zagora

Information about Zagora

Zagora, a city of the southern of Morocco, that we reach after miles and miles of vast palm groves that are aboundant in the Draa Valley. It lies between the limits of the palm groves of Ternata and Ferzuata. At the foot of the rock mountain there are the ruins of an Almoravid fortress of the XIII century. Zagora is the largest city of this region and has a population of about 20.000 inhabitants and is the administrative center of the region.

The city itself has no special interest, even if the atmosphere at sunset on the main street is amazing for its liveliness. From that area came the Saadian, which in the XVI century began their conquest of the Valley of Sus and than of all Morocco.

It is located in a beautiful area, with a spectacular backdrop of mountain. One of the most coveted souvenirs is a photograph showing the cartel: Timbuktu 52 days by camel.
