Palais Salem Hotel
Favorite thing: Apart from the walls of the town only a few monuments remain. We visited the Palais Salem Hotel inside the kasbah. Acces is from outside the wall. The hotel was a 19th century palace of the pasha. The public rooms of the hotel maintain some of their orginal splendour.
Even if you don't stay in the hotel, it's allowed to look around. There is also an enclosed luxuriant garden with high banana trees. We came here twice to have a cup of tea in the shade of this lovely garden, after a walk in town.
- Historical Travel
Favorite thing: The Tannery is a favourite place for tourists to go and see. The leather goods prices are very reasonable and sure you can tell when the price you're told is expensive. The tannery of Taroudant is located outside of the gate called Bab Targount, easy to find.
Taroudannt, central squares
Favorite thing: Within the walls of Taroudannt are two central squares, Place al- Alouayine or with its Berber name Place Assarag and Place an-Nasr or with its Berber name Place Talmoqlate.
The centre of Taroudannt is small, so it was very easy to find our way around these central squares. In this area are restaurants and hotels. The souqs are nearby. A nice place to sit for a while and have a drink and a look at the daily life in town.
Taxis and some buses stop or terminate at the squares.
Centre of Taroudannt
Favorite thing: Taroudannt was never a French adminstrative centre like many other Moroccan towns of the same size and importance. So, there is no European quarter with wide boulevards and modern buildings outside the walls.
At the other side there are inside the walls in the centre also no ancient winding alleys.
In the centre are two central squares near the souqs the Place Assarag and the Place Talmoqlate.
The atmosphere is friendly and easygoing.
