Between palms and castles

After the Amerhidl, the other must-see kasbah is the Dar Ait Sidi el-Mati. The Kasbah Ben Amar is a good excuse to make a thorough exploration of the oasis. Such a tour should also include the Ait Ben Abou, which takes some effort to reach but which is considerd the second finest in the oasis.
In order to understand the religious nature of the region, the Marabout Sidi M'Barek ou Ali is officially a Muslim shrine, but its arrangement of cult tell all the stories of a religious universe from pre-Islamic times.
