The village of MSOUN, 29km east of Taza, just north of the N6 highway sits within a kasbah that dates to the reign of Moulay Ismail (1672–1727). Inhabited by a hundred or so members of the semi-nomadic Haoura tribe, the kasbah is still turreted and complete on three sides. You can view its original rainwater cistern and grain silos, alongside the settlement’s shop, post office and mosque.
