Southern Moroccan Kasbah Architecture, Agdz, Morocco

Southern Moroccan Kasbah Palace Architecture, Agdz, Draa Valley, Southern Morocco, 2015-06-13. 

Agdz is a small town located inbetween Ouarzazate and Zagora which offers a great glimpse into Southern Moroccan oasis palmery life, making a pefect overnight stop or lunch break off while traveling towards the southern Erg Chigaga region of the Sahara desert. 

It played an important role in the trade between Marrakesh and Timbuktu via the old caravan route across the Sahara desert.

This building is located inside the Casbah Caid Ali hotel and camping complex, where the family are descendents of the local Caid of Agdz. This particular section of the old Kasbah Palace is currently being restored by the family.
