Imchguiguiln – Visit of a fortified granary
Journey from Agadir: 1 hour 20 mins / 70 km
It is in the Country of Ait Baha, very close to Agadir, that you will find Agadir Imchguiguiln, one of the oldest “igoudar” in the region. This agadir is distinguished by its vast corridor formed by two impressive rows of huts which were used to secure foodstuffs, crops and even jewels and precious documents. This fortified granary is around 750 years old.
Recent rehabilitation works have made it possible to renovate around thirty huts, the central square, a mosque and outbuildings, all while respecting the construction techniques of the Anti-Atlas.
When crossing the village, do not hesitate to ask for the contact of the granary keeper to make sure that it is open.
How to get there:
From Agadir, take road 105 towards Biougra / Ait Baha. After crossing the magnificent landscape of the Arganeraie Biosphere Reserve, we see, three kilometers before Aït Baha, a large sign on the left. Access is easy by car to the village of Imchguiguiln (30.094359, -9.164338).
