The Kasbah of Amergou

The Kasbah of Amergou is unfortunately a forgotten marvel of Morocco’s national heritage located in the province of Taounate, Rif (northern Morocco). Amergou is undoubtedly the most important Almoravid military work that has come down to us. It is part of a series of fortifications erected by the Almoravids (1056-1147) to thwart the surge of their Almohad opponents. Its architectural style is unique in the Maghreb. This fortified site offers the best stunning view over Dam and its surrounding landscapes as well as can be turned out into a great filmmaking destination.
