Granaries of Aoujgal, Atlas, Morocco

Granaries Of Aoujgal

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 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.
