The big Sunday market
The medieval city of Taroudant is nestled in the heart of the Souss region 80 km from Agadir, the medina is surrounded by 7 km of walls, the longest in all of Morocco. This is indeed one of the oldest cities in the kingdom. It is famous for the handicrafts of all kinds: leather, carpets, pottery, jewelry ... We find also the heart of the medina over 1000 merchants selling different products. The various gardens surrounding this picturesque town give the distinct impression of being in a large oasis. Lying in the Anti-Atlas, the climate of the city is pleasant, yet dry and warm enough.
The town is rich in beautiful landscapes, historic monuments but also ancient historical doors, with a magnificent Moorish architecture, built to ease traffic in the city, namely: Bab al-Kasbah Bab Leblalia, Bab Zorgan, Bab BenYara, Targhount Bab Bab Oulad Bounouna and Bab al-Khemis.
Taroudant is economically essential with its industrial zone about 10 kilometers east of the city, and its agriculture, known for the quality of its citrus plantations, mainly oranges and clementines, rightly favored by its geographical location and the quality of its climate.

Occupied or attacked in turn by various peoples and dynasties, Taroudant keeps the mystery as to the exact time of its foundation. It dates back to the year 681, during the conquest of Islam in this country. The governor of Souss it would be installed and the city would become an administrative center.
The Roman army would have also required an outpost (named Vala) in Taroudant and the Berber tribes were settled there between the ninth and tenth centuries.
In the sixteenth century the city became the first capital of the Saadian sultans before Marrakech. The Emir Mohamed Sheikh Saadi, a native of Arabia, founded the dynasty of Saadian which gradually conquered Morocco. It was he who erected walls around Taroudant.
A stamp that one does not forget
The area around the city offer, in places, lush vegetation. The walk along the ramparts is lined with ornamental trees. In parks, date palms provide shade and coolness, while cascades of bougainvillea varying colors flow along the walls (peak bloom between May and September).
We enter the city (medina) by one of the ten arched doors have seven kilometers of ramparts to sand tones. The houses are mostly pink or red ocher ocher, like in Marrakech. In the busy streets hover grilled fish odors, olives or roasted from the stalls. On the main squares, fruit juice merchants disappear behind pyramids of oranges.
