Ancient Igoudar of Southern Morocco

Portrait of an elderly Berber man wearing traditional Amazigh dress, sitting outside the Ait Inlatten Granary, Taliouine province of the Souss Massa Draa, Southern Morocco, 2016-05-24. 

The Inlatten ‘agadir’ (singular form of granary in Tamazert Amazigh dialect) is a fortified Berber collective granary.

The journey to find each agadir is really the fun part. Whether it’s stopping to meet interesting characters as you ask for directions in remote villages, finding yourself being invited to drink tea at a home during rains, or laughing as you weigh up the tales told by key keepers concerning the secrets of the agadirs, these incredible structures make for an amazing thread to any trekking route through the Anti Atlas.
