Hidden by magnificent walls of red mud, and with the snow-capped peaks of the High Atlas beckoning beyond, the souks and squares of Taroudannt have a wholesome sprinkling of Maghreb mystique. However, it is also a practical place, a town where the Berbers trade the product of the rich and fertile plain of Oued Souss. There are no must-see sites. Instead, the medina is a place to stroll and linger. The two souqs are well worth a visit, more laid back than Marrakech but with an atmosphere of activity that is absent in Agadir.
