Taroudant is often referred to as ‘little Marrakech’. Like many Moroccan towns, this city is enclosed by high ramparts. Within Taroudant’s pink and gold walls, there is a distinct sense of tradition and culture.
Holidays in Taroudant are not complete without a few excursions. The city is a great base from which to enjoy other fascinating parts of Morocco – the High Atlas Mountains, the oasis town of Tata and the beach resort of Agadir can be accessed from the city.
The winding streets and alleyways of this ancient city can be explored on foot, bike or even by horse drawn carriage. Bustling souks haven’t changed in hundreds of years, so a trip to these marketplaces will have visitors reliving an almost forgotten way of life. Shady courtyards and hidden gardens are juxtaposed with captivating architecture.
Although there is no beach near the city, holidaymakers will find ample opportunities to soak up the North African sun while exploring the area.
