The landscape belongs to the person who looks at it... - Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Located approximately 10km from the fortified city of El Jadida, Jorf Lasfar is a Moroccan port in deep water with a mineral, energy and diverse vocation. It is the first and the largest mineral port in Africa.
Jorf Lasfar escarpment gives rise to beautiful landscape along the coastal road. It's has a markedly yellow colour as indicated by the name of the site, "Jorf Lasfar", meaning "yellow cliff or rock" in Arabic.
In the heart of the Moroccan High Atlas, the transhumant Berber tribes have built amazing granaries. Most of them take the form of fortresses and some others are hung half-way up vertiginous cliffs. Structured by social practices, these practical facilities were used for the protection of meager wealth and cultural. Nowadays, they have lost their functional utility.
Dated of the 17th century, the granaries of Aoujgal are built at mid-height on a cliff of more than 300 m and stretch over two kilometers along a narrow terrace.
Mountains are the beginning and the end of all natural scenery - John Ruskin.
In the days when wars and ethnic conflicts ruled the mountains of North Africa, legend has it that when battles dragged on, tribal leaders would gather in a sacred place to draw up a pact of peace. They had to travel over 600m of steep terrain, crossing aerial walkways, to get to the top of Tamga Imsfrane, home of the sacred ritual. Also called “Cathedral Rock” for its shape, this sedimentary rock located near the Gorges of Assif Melloul has become a world renowned spot for base-jumpers.
