How high is your bread bin?
In the town of Amtoudi (Also known as Id Aissa) they used to store their grain up high. Very high up in whats called an agadir, fortified granary, with towers and ramparts sitting on the spur of a hill.
High cliffs holding up high walls.
Just look at the walls on top of the cliffs, and at this stage we are on top of the hill.
The top! With the valley in the background
Path is twisty and steep
It’s a tough climb but well worth it.
Mules and Donkeys are used to bring tourists up to the grain store
The path to the top
Of course, Merv insisted that we walk.
Each of these roofs is a store room. We liked the morning light on the roofs
Inside some of the rooms, there are cubby holes
In the cubby holes there are wicker containers
Barley is grown on every scrap of ground where water can be used to irrigate it.
Barley is a very important crop in Morocco
Top of the rock – well worth the climb
