Berkane is a dusty modern town. It's famous for its oranges and everything in the town is indeed orange, from the taxis and buildings and the wonderful statue of an orange as you enter the town. It’s most useful to travellers as a transit point, as well as a base for exploring the Beni-Snassen Mountains.
The town is easy to navigate as it’s stretched along Blvd Mohammed V, which leads from the orange Grande Mosquée in the west to the large roundabout at the other end, dominated by a large orange municipal building. You’ll find the post office and ATMs here, as well as a couple of hotels. Halfway between is the main square, with the CTM station on the south side.
