Located in the small Berber village of Telouet, in the rural town of Telouet, in the High Atlas Mountains, Morocco, its most famous occupant is probably Thami El Glaou.The current kasbah was built in 1860 by the Glaoua, next to an old kasbah whose remains are still visible today. It was subsequently greatly enlarged during the first half of the twentieth century by Thami El Glaoui. Legend has it that 300 workers worked for three years decorating ceilings and walls. These are made either of finely chiselled stucco, sometimes of zelliges for the walls, and cedar painted for the ceiling1. The roofs are made of ceramic tiles painted green.The result is a set of huge buildings, whose interior decoration shows an important wealth.Duration: 2 hoursStop At: Tizi n Tichka, Ouarzazate, Souss-Massa-Draa RegionSightseeingDuration: 10 minutesStop At: High Atlas Mountains, Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz RegionSightseeingDuration: 10 minutes
