Kasbah Amridil

Medina in Skoura

Morocco’s most coveted kasbah is this 17th-century wonder, which appears on Morocco’s 50-dirham note. Signposted just a few hundred metres from the main road, this living museum shows traditional kasbah life over the centuries, with hand-carved door locks, an olive oil press, still-functioning bread ovens and stalls where animals were once kept.

Confusingly, there are now two separate entrances, each claiming to be the 'authentic' kasbah. In truth, the original kasbah is on the right; the building on the left was a later addition, and is actually a riad with a garden in the middle (a design not native to the area but imported from Marrakesh).
