The palm grove of Skoura is about forty kilometers from Ouarzazate city downstream of the Dades Valley to 1188 m altitude between Atlas, Anti-Atlas and the Dades Valley, famous for its olive and its oil.
Foggaras bring water from the mountains to irrigate the palm offers the cool oasis, a maze of lush gardens in the shade of date palms, pomegranate, fig, almond, checkered cereal. it first meets the eye as a large green ribbon making its way between the beige ridges, white sometimes in winter. And driving past it, one cannot help but wish to explore it. Once past the oued and within the shade of the palm trees, a true earthly heaven uncovers itself: figs and pomegranates, vine and pumpkins, tomatoes and olives, rosemary and thyme all grow next to each other, as the water streams gently make their way to each garden, ingeniously separated by hand- made dams, that get open and closed every few hours.
One can wander for hours here, protected by the shade of the palms, past century- old kasbahs where the local guide will tell you the differences between Berber and Jewish architecture.Among the many kasbas of the oasis like Ameridil,Sidi Maati and Ait Sous worth a visit.
