A small smorgasbord of creative delight….colour, texture and ingenuity. Weaving and looms are part of the daily landscape in Morocco.
Rissani is located on the edge of the Sahara close to the border with Algeria. Once a thriving centre during the 14th to 18th centuries, it is now quiet and somewhat smaller in size. There were many treasures to be found….. a local guide took us through the following area …..The door into the souk was said to be hundreds of years old
Im unclear what kinds of wood were used in the building of these places. There are no trees growing in the vicinity.
The roof of this building was incredibly high and after centuries still solid as.
With our guide we wandered through the labyrinth of dim walkways passing by many doors all unique and different.
Once a water fountain.
