Ancient imperial capitals are hardly be more unassuming than the oasis of Azougi, 10km northwest of Atâr. It was from here in the 11th century that the Berber Almoravids launched their great expansion, spreading Islam throughout West Africa, and establishing their grand capital at Marrakesh. Now this tiny hamlet with its spreading palm groves makes for a sleepy retreat between Ouadâne and Chinguetti
