Skoura lies astride the route from Ouarzazate to the Sahara and is a town typical of those in the Dades Valley.

Draa ValleyThe modern town offers little to detain the visitor, but the palm plantations are criss-crossed by paths that run by crumbling pisé walls up to kasbahs in equally ruinous condition.

The whole effect is quite beautiful and if you are going to break your journey anywhere in the Dades Valley, Skoura is as good a place as any.
