Ifri cliff granary – near Taliouine
Trip from Agadir: 3 hours / 230 km
Ifri Imadidene’s granary is one of the rare collective granaries under rock and partly troglodyte still in operation. Located some 17 km from Taliouine on the way to Ouarzazate, the granary of Ifri Imadidene is an architectural masterpiece of the region.
The granary is located under the water source which comes from the plateau. It is separated from the village by fields of cereals and almond trees.
You can also find this very old type of granary in the Assif Melloul valley in the Eastern High Atlas in Igherm n’Ouchtin (now abandoned) but even more curious in Gran Canaria with Cenobio de Valeron. The granary has been restored by the association of Keepers of Memory and supported by the “Global Heritage Fund”.
How to get there:
From Agadir, after crossing Taliouine, you leave the N10 national road and turn right onto the main road P1743. From this intersection, drive a few kilometers to reach the village of Ifri and its granary (30.444314, -7.838373), both are on the left side of the road.
