Taroudant, also known as Little Marrakech, is a charming barbary town where you will see tile red buildings and Moorish architecture. You can reach Taroudant, located quite close to Al Massira Airport, by air as well as you can reach by land from other cities of Morocco. To get to know the Moroccan culture and traditions, all you need to do is plan a 3 or 4-day trip to Taroudant. You can make a perfect start with the Souss Massa National Park and continue your Taroudant tour with the Anti Atlas Mountains (Paradise Valley). You can come across the stunning views of the Atlas Mountains through the road from Tizi-n-Test Passage to Taroudant.

Taroudant, having a rich and deep-rooted history, continues to be in the limelight of thousands of local and foreign tourists every year with its colorful bazaars, historical buildings and natural beauties. Easily accessible with one-day tours from Marrakech, Taroudant is within a 3-hour distance from Marrakech city center. There are buses departing both from Taroudant and Marrakech every day. Taroudant, an ancient Moroccan capital, is on the Atlantic coast; it was founded by the Saadian dynasty as a base for attacking the Portuguese. The city walls, which have a history dating back to 1528, stand out just like the first day. You can take the guided tours to see the Palais Claudio Bravo Camus, the old house of the Spanish hyperrealist artist Claudio Bravo, where you will also have the opportunity to see Bravo's works and his numerous collections.

You will possibly come across many souvenirs reflecting the culture of the region at Place Assarag located on both sides of Taroudant's main square. In addition to Place Assarag that is the local open-air market, we also recommend you to see the Municipal Market (also known as the Barbary Bazaar). Located directly opposite the Taroudant square, the Arab Souk offers ceramic, earthenware, leather goods and local handicrafts products. Leather goods sold here come from tanneries outside the Bab Taghrount. You can taste the classic Moroccan delicacies, especially tagine and kuskus, at Riad Maryam, the ideal place to experience Moroccan cuisine. Moving through the citrus trees, you can also taste the delicious mechoui lamb at Dar Zitoune located 2 kilometers away from the town.
