The southern side of the Atlas Mountains is in the direction of the Sahara desert and lures with the charms of the desert: ocher-colored reliefs and red indentations of large rivers that are fed by the snow melt every spring. Because of the water live here people and wonderful gardens surrounded great buildings from earth. We discover a mineral universe and a small paradise where we always find the hospitality of the Berbers.
