Let us introduce you to the architectural heritage of Souss Massa. The towns and countryside of Souss Massa are teeming with architectural treasures: Ramparts, fortified granaries called Igoudars, Ksours and Kasbahs.
Collective granaries (agadir or igoudar) are traditional constructions of southern Morocco, they have a defensive vocation and storage of the goods of a community. Basically, it is the “bank” of the tribes of Souss Massa.

Located 5 km southwest of Akka Ighane, the ksar of Tiskmoudine (29.963018, -7.551340) is a compulsory visit if you are around Akka Ighane. The oasis life takes on its full meaning during the visit. Do not hesitate to get lost there.
Agadir Imchguiguiln 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.
At just 1 hour and 10 minutes from Tafraoute, you will find one of the most beautiful “igoudar” in the region. Agadir Tasguent is over 350 years old. Tasguent is one of the largest and best preserved in the Anti-Atlas.

The Agadir Inoumar was built over 300 years ago towards the end of the reign of Sultan Moulay Ismaïl (1645/1727). To face the risks of attack, the building was built on an area of half a hectare overlooking the Oued Ourga.
