Taroudant is a Moroccan city located in the Souss-Massa-Draa region. This walled town also has a nickname, the “Grandmother of Marrakech”. To many people, the ramparts in Taroudant make this city reminiscent of Marrakech, albeit a bit slower and smaller in size. It is a lovely and elegant city that is quite well known for the jewelry and carpet crafts that are produced here. The discount hotels in Taroudant can be found close to the areas where these crafts are sold.
The gates that are a part of the ramparts are still in one piece today. Once you are outside the ramparts of Taroudant, you will find a tannery, which features goods and equipment used for camel riding. There is a wonderfully exciting Berber market in Taroudant where you can buy vegetables, spices, household goods, and clothing. You will also want to visit the Arab souk where items made from terra cotta, pottery, copper, brass, wrought iron, and leather can be purchased, along with different types of rugs, carpets and jewelry. When you are staying at one of the budget hotels in Taroudant, you will find yourself in comfortable surroundings where you can relax and enjoy your Moroccan trip.
