The Glaoui Taliouine Kasbah

Located on the right side at the outskirts of Taliouine, heading towards Ouarzazate, the Glaoui Kasbah stands majestically against the backdrop of the Anti-Atlas Mountains. It used to be the residence of the powerful governor of Marrakech, “El Haj T’hami El Mezouari El Glaoui,” a highly respected leader of the Glaoui tribe in Morocco and known as the lord of the Atlas.

Apart from a portion that has been converted into tourist accommodation, the rest of the building has gradually fallen into ruin since the early 20th century, defying the passage of time while preserving its glorious history.
