Glaoui Kasbah

Historic Building in Agdz

Long-time residents of Agdz report their shock at discovering that the walled Glaoui kasbah in Agdz was used as a secret desert detention centre. Hassan II’s purges to suppress political dissidents led to the establishment of such secret detention centres, details of which emerged post-2004 through Morocco’s Equity and Reconciliation Commission. It's located on the southern side of the piste (dirt track) near Rose du Sable guesthouse and marked 307 on the gate.

If you see the next-door neighbour who keeps an eye on the place, you can ask him to let you in the door to look around.
