The small town of Zagora on the edge of the Sahara is a good base for exploring the Draa Valley to the north, with its various oases, palm groves and casbahs. The ksar (residential buildings) of Tamnougalt, the Timidierte Kasbah and the Igdaouan Kasbah are architectural standouts there. To the south, Tamegroute also has a ksar worth visiting. It houses a library with a lovely collection of illuminated Qurans and other Islamic manuscripts. Excursions by camel or four-wheel-drive vehicles are offered into the nearby dunes of the Sahara. Zagora is 105 mi/170 km southeast of Ouarzazate.
