Taroudant: little but not that little Marrakech

MOROCCO | Monday, 9 April 2018 | Views [143]

Best known as “little Marrakech” Taroudant is an excellent place to spend your holidays and relax with your friends. It is not that small and it has so many things to offer that you will never be upset of spending your holidays here. It has the greatest landscapes, specially the High Atlas which is beyond this city. Everything in this city has a mystique look, and if you ask me this is really interesting. Every square is magic and comfortable, and the souks are amazing too. I can say that everything here is comfortable and practice; you find everything that you need without walking long distances or driving long distances. It is not the biggest town, but it is still a good destination for tourists who like to do Morocco Tour.

However, this is not a place in which you will spend more than three days. It is perfect for a road trip in which you see many places in one or two days. There are not see sights that you mandatory have to see as places too. As usual, I will recommend you to visit the Medina as all the cities have this, but in this case the Medina is not that big. It is actually a great place to hang out and spend your time, but you will not definitely feel on a rush or you will not being pushed by people. There are souks too and you can go there if you want to buy something or if you need something. Even if you are not looking for anything specific, you may end up buying something that you thought it was really nice.

The great thing about adding this place to your Morocco Tour is the fact that there are many convenient places near. The High Atlas and the anti-Atlas are close to Taroudant and this is perfect if you love hiking and trekking; it is definitely a perfect combination. So, you can combine your trip by visiting Taroudant, relaxing for a little and then go into an adventure visiting those big mountains.

If I had to describe this city, I will say that this a city who is stuck on time –in a very good way-. It is totally alive, it has life in the street, little souks and squares. It is an adventure to come here and immerse into a city that will make you feel curious and exciting about being here. It looks like a traditional Moroccan town, so it is almost impossible not to feel different here. It is almost impossible not to have that Moroccan cultural experience when you are in these kinds of places. Sometimes it makes you forget about your problems as it keeps your mind busy learning about a new culture.

People usually forget about this it but I consider this is a mistake. You just need to organize your Morocco Tripso you get the chance to see many places at the same time. Also, take into account the driving times or how far are cities from each other; that should be enough to have a fantastic trip in Morocco.

As I mentioned before, one of the key places is definitely the Medina. It is big enough and its color is similar to the reddish sand. I like the Medina because it looks cozy and Moroccans seem to enjoy walking around this place –with a bunch of tourists make it even harder-. It keeps well maintained during the years, and this is something that surprise many people when they come here. Be sure to walk around the Medina before leaving this city.
