    Valley of the Kasbahs Navigation

About Valley of the Kasbahs

You'll find the Valley of the Kasbahs in Morocco. So... what exactly is a 'Kasbah' again? Well, it's a single stone or rock tower that's usually part of a tower house. That means that here in the Valley of the Kasbahs you'll find loads and loads of these Kasbahs. Enjoy!

Moroccan locals have brilliant rug making skills. Their dying and weaving shows off a definite craftmanship.

A photo that represents the Valley of the Kasbahs extremely well. Most of these are actually abandoned.

The Valley of the Kasbahs makes for great exploring. Check out the hundreds of abandoned, ancient Kasbahs, the colourful villages, nearby Todra Gorge and wash the whole experience down with a dose of the friendly Moroccan locals.
