Presentation of Er Rachidia ____

Built in the early twentieth century as the Ksar es Souk, Er Rachidia lies in the region of Tafilalet and is today a city administrative, military and academia.

Downtown is the bus station, around which are grouped in banks, post office and many shops and a small covered market where you can find everything.

Er Rachidia is a strategic place, a crossroads in the valley of Ziz. To the north, through the High Atlas and extending to the Middle Atlas, the road provides access to the imperial cities of Fez and Meknes.

South of Er Rachidia Ziz Valley joined Merzouga dunes of Erg Chebbi. This road overlooking the valley, offering stunning panoramic views from a small oasis known as the source of blue Meski. You can enjoy the freshness, along the creek in the shade of palm trees and even camping.

To the east, Algeria is close beyond the arid plains of Bouarfa and the oasis of Figuig.

To the west, Er Rachidia to Ouarzazate is reached by road in 1000 kasbahs, along the valleys of Todra, Dades and roses up the palm of Ouarzazate.
