    Read about The Telouet Kasbah

    The Kasbah was the seat of power for the Al Glaoui family. Muhammad Ibibet founded the Kasbah in the second half of the nineteenth century. After his death, the Al Glaoui family took ownership of the Kasbah, supervising its construction and enhancing its architectural splendor, making it a source of pride for Morocco. Its classification within the human cultural heritage framework attests to its high quality.

    Built on a high place overlooking the neighboring lands in 1860, the Kasbah’s construction evolved year after year as the wealth and influence of the Glaoui family increased. The characteristic of Telouet lies in the use of stone, and it went beyond its defensive nature to become a place of recreation and rest for the guests of the Glaoui family due to the abundance of water in this area. The Kasbah of Telouet is a model of an entire miniature city, built in the time-honored tradition of Moroccan architecture.

    The Glaoui also took care to decorate its rooms with carved zellige (tiles), and the reception room is a magnificent sight with its doors and windows made of juniper wood, as well as its ceilings, which contain the most beautiful and pompous Moroccan carvings of cedar wood decorated with the most exquisite colors. A combination of Andalusian aesthetics and Amazigh flair, this work is considered one of the best produced by more than 300 local artisans and creators from all over Morocco during five years of hard work.

    Later, after visiting the Kasbah, we set off again to Tizi N T’ichka, where we will have lunch. In the late afternoon, we drop you off at your accommodation, marking the end of your 4-day Morocco Desert tour.
