Why Visit Skoura Oasis, Morocco

Make sure to visit the beautiful Skoura Oasis while in Morocco. Two seasonal rivers maintain the liveliness of lush nature, making it one of the most beautiful oases in the country. However, man-made wonders also attract a growing number of tourists to visit the area, and it's a great place to explore the country's landscapes along with cultural heritage and historical monuments.

Among the latter ones stand the imposing 17th-century Amerhidl Kasbah, it is actually one of the most visited places in the area, due to its grand size and decorative architecture. You can take a look at the inner courtyard, kitchens and multiple apartments in the building and visit the small museum currently on site.

Enjoying the surroundings and nature along with numerous kasbahs in the area is the most important part of Skoura Oasis sightseeing, but it is also advisable to explore other places of interest nearby as well. Located around 30 kilometers away, the lovely city of Ouarzazate is a great example. Known as a gateway to the Sahara Desert, it is full of authentic Moroccan architecture which was actually featured in multiple movies. That could be a great idea for a day-trip from the oasis, right?

Consisting of small villages, kasbahs, and an abundance of palms, a Skoura Oasis tour is undoubtedly a unique experience, taking you through an authentic maze of history and culture. It might seem small at first, but stepping deeper into the oasis, you'll be surprised at the size of the site and, at the same time, enchanted by its beauty.
