Stope and stay in Rissani to see and feel the small desert town while tourists immediately  hurry on to the Sahara. Spending time in Rissani, Iseek to translte the sense of place of this small Sahariyan town, we guide you to which focuses on the life of a small town next to the Dunes.The people of Rissani, the quotidian life of the town, the surrounding dwellings and the Sahara itself are all the subject of this tour.Ms.ABDELLAH capture intimate vignettes of life, often inaccessible or overlooked by tourists, providing an intimate experience of a special place. We discovers the rhythms of everyday life showing families, the local architecture, The historic monuments of Sijilmassa, workers and merchants in the rural Souk. its people and
their way of life.
  The Sahara unfold next to Rissani and part of experiencing the great desert is encountering the Nomads who live and travel through the Sahara . the power of the desert , its changing light ,colors,temperature and blowing sand reshaping the dunes, are powerful elements of the environment. The Dunes of Erg Chibbi and the flat desert floor surrounded by many other dunes, 30 minutes from Rissani, are beautiful and dominate the landscape .


   Rissani has been transformed by modern life , but remains a porr and conservative spot in estern MOROCCO far from the larger sophisticated northern cities of Marrakesh an Casablanca. its history is illustrious but little remains visible exeept crumbling ruins of Sijilmassa. Between757-1400  Sijilmassa, was the site of the kingdom of the south,the capital of a virtually indepenndent Islamic principality in the early days of the Arab conquest of North Africa.The city thrived and the greatest wealth came from its location, the last stopping
point on the caravan routes south .Carvans, sometimes as large as 20,000 camels, stopped here to trade gold for slaves (Souk Sijilmassa).

Today Rissani continues as an important center for trade but edon a considerably reduced scale. Its large Souk sells all variety of animals, products and produce. There are individual markets within the Souk for the sale of sheep, goats, mules and donkeys, the traditional transport of goods and people . Fresh fruit and vegetables brighten the Souks aisles along with stacks of spices in assored colors. Clothes, shoes and backpacks hang from horizontal bars attached to stalls drawing in the eye of the shopper. Rissani and its Souk retain their historie relationship to the desert, since in addition to locals, Nomads converge at the thriceweekly Souk, after travling long distances for the benefits of the size and specialties of the Souk.

The center of Rissani has simple modern tow and three story apartment buildings. The historie architecture can be seen along the circuit road outside the center of town , on the Route Touristique de Rissani. The Kour, large fortress-like square or rectangular interconnected
structures built with towers, simple crenellation, tall entrance gates, and interior doors of paited metal with decorative swirls of relief work or plain metal are visible from the road The structures are earth colored from building withe a combination of dirt, mud, sand and straw made into free forms or bricks. In this rural part of the country, a Ksar, a single Kour, is a much-simplified version of the high style buildings you see to the north and west. The historie Ksar is home to many people on a scale comparable to a village.
