is a city in the Draa River valley in the Drâa-Tafilalet region of southeastern Morocco, built in the 20th century...
Zagora is also noted for international events such as the Zagora Marathon and the Nomads Festival in M'Hamid....
Zagora is called “The Desert Gate” because it’s one of the last towns in Morocco before the start of the Sahara Desert. Camel caravans used to stop at Zagora before going to Timbuktu. It would take 52 days to get there!
Several paths run between the gardens, making it ideal for a wander.Over 30 varieties of dates grow in the region, harvested from September to November. The town is renowned for having the best dates in the country.
The people of Zagora have been shaped by their environment for many years. Centuries living on the edge of the desert have forged a strong sense of independence into these Moroccans, but at the same time they are friendly and welcoming.
The culture you’ll find in Zagora is very different to that of the northern towns and cities. While you’re here make time for the Musee des Arts and Traditions de la Vallee de Draa.
