"Figuig The Lost Oasis | Private & Luxury

Figuig are an oasis of freshness…. lost in the middle of the desert, surrounded by mountains. Inhabited by barely 12,000 inhabitants; the city is today a little frequented by tourists because it is very remote from the big cities of Morocco. The calm that reigns there makes it seem like time has stood still.
The vast palm grove is the most beautiful in the country, with many fruit trees that grow in abundance; constitutes the economic lung of Figuig with tourism, as well as handicrafts and breeding.

Figuig has also managed to preserve a rich architectural heritage with seven traditional Ksours; a set of fortresses that once served to protect the city.
In addition Figuig has seven major ksour: Laâbidate, Lamaïz, Hammam Foukani, Hammam Tahtani, Loudaghir, Ouled Slimane, and Zenaga, the largest. Isolated from the rest of the world, Figuig deserves its nickname “Pearl of the desert”.

    Figuig, the oasis off the beaten track
    In the past, from the 14th to the 16th century, Figuig designated a long and particularly prosperous territory extending to the south-east of Morocco, along the border with Algeria.
    Today, the oasis of Figuig, planted in the heart of a mountainous circus located at the threshold of the great Saharan erg, is the union of 7 ksour, divided into two adjacent palm groves.
    There are six in the North, on the Loudaghir plateau, including that of El Hammam- el-Foukani, while in the South the Zenaga ksar, in the Baghdad plain, the largest, alone included a third of the population of the oasis estimated at 15,000 inhabitants.
    Because of its distance from traditional tourist circuits, unknown to most travelers and tour operators, Figuig has kept a real authenticity.
    Duration: 4 hours

    Stop At: Figuig, Figuig, Oriental
    Discover the oasis of Figuig, it is to stroll in the narrow lanes of its ksour, to walk the paths of the palm groves El Hammam and El Maïz, to leave with the assault of the various paths of excursion climbing the surrounding mountains and to admire the panoramic views overhanging the oasis.
    Visit Figuig
    Ksar of El-Hammam-el-Foukani North-east of El Maïz
    It contains the ancient Zaouïa of Sidi Bou Amama (1840 - 1908), native of the ksar, it was an emblematic figure of the uprising of the populations of the south of Oran, in Algeria, against the French occupation.
    To the south of the ksar behind a small door, a staircase, slippery attention, goes down to the hot spring at 33 ° which gives its name to the ksar.
    Duration: 3 hours

    Stop At: Figuig, Figuig, Oriental
    Ksar Zenaga 5 km south
    A path bypasses the ksar el Oudaghir, from the west, and leads to hot and salty springs and a palm grove to reach the ksar of Zenaga, the farthest, but the largest ksour of the Figuig oasis.
    The introduction of concrete in renovations or new constructions is a slight task in this typical ksour setting and undeniably removes charm from the traditional character of the place.
    The main artery, Hassan II Boulevard, houses Figuig’s bus stop, post office and bank branches, as well as the inevitable traditional cafes and small restaurants.
    The craft trade is found in the ksour: carpets, djellabas, and burnous are the specialties. Nearby, numerous walks can be made, in particular with the assault of the many hot springs of the valley of wadi Zousfana offering splendid panoramic views on the close Sahara.
    The surprising hikes to make within the chain of Jbel Grouz participate in the beauty of the site.

    Rich of about 150,000 palm trees, the Figuig oasis is among the most beautiful in Morocco. Emerging from about twenty springs, the water is conveyed by gullies, seguias, or by underground channels, khettaras.
    Most of the inhabitants of the oasis live from the exploitation of fruit trees, pomegranate trees, olive trees, fig trees and vines as well as from the cultivation of cereals, vegetables and alfalfa. But the most important remains that of date palms.
