Rissani Overview

Rissani is a town in the region of Meknès-Tafilalelt. Rissani was the former economic capital of Morocco and the first imperial city in the country's history, called Sijilmassa, but today is not considered as such. It was also a transit center for caravans between Morocco, Niger and Mali. The current royal family is originally from this city.

The city has an imposing entrance arch, but what is more interesting is the full circuit of ksour. Ksour is the plural of Ksar or rammed sand buildings typical of or similar to adobe kasbahs. And the best part is that they are authentic because they have not been distorted with new materials and different designs to the originals.
