Welcome to Setti Fatma


Prime times to visit are in early March when the cherry and almond trees are in bloom, or in August for the four-day moussem, with its fair and market at the koubba of Setti Fatma. During the summer, the place is clogged with visitors from Marrakesh, so consider heading to the splendidly untrammelled neighbouring valleys of Zat and Ouirgane instead.
