Tafraoute Morocco As The Official Almond Capital Of Moroc
Tafraoute Morocco is a conglomeration of ochre-covered buildings set amid green trees, offering a spectacular contrast of colours against the surrounding pink rocks of the Anti-Atlas Mountains.
The area is known for its dramatic geography, with its expanses of red desert, and is also the official almond capital of Morocco. If you are fortunate enough to be here in early spring, you may catch the annual Almond Blossom Festival. The delicate blooms offer another dimension to this already spectacular landscape, with their stark contrast to the rugged soil and dark, rich sand. During the festival, the otherwise sleepy town of Tafraoute Morocco is transformed by a carnival-like atmosphere when the souk (market), complete with dancers and musicians, springs up. This event is ideal if you want to escape the popular modern beach holiday area for something a little different.
