Oasis Skoura

The Skoura Oasis lies in the south of Morocco, 35km east of Ouarzazate. This region is called the Dades Valley but is also known as the Valley of the 1000 Kasbahs.

There are many kasbahs (fortresses, citadels) here, some in ruins, others in good conditions, taking into account their age. The most impressive is Amridil Kasbah, whose construction began in the seventeenth century.

The Skoura Oasis has a large palm grove where you can take long walks, with or without a guide. Skoura is perfect for a stopover on the way between Marrakesh and the desert in the Erg Chebbi Dunes.
