The Tafilalet Region: Merzouga and Rissani
We spent three days in the Tafilalet region: two in Merzouga and one in Rissani.
Rissani is worth a stop or can be visited as a day trip from Merzouga, best on a souk day (Sundays, Tuesdays or Thursdays); we discovered old ksars, paid a visit to Zawiya Moulay Ali ash-Sharif, the shrine of the founder of the Alaouite dynasty which still today reigns over Morocco and even found the ruins of the old city of Sijilmassa. We enjoyed walking on the quiet side lanes with hardly a car but plenty of cyclists.
