REASONS TO VISIT

 

Adrar

Beam point of the outreach of the Almoravids, the wilaya is famous for its palm groves, its annual guetna (treatment of fresh dates) and its gardens.

Its capital, Atar, is the starting point of many treks. The city presents, on one side, the old ksar with narrow streets and multiple escapades, and on the other, the recent city with wide straight streets. Created in the 13th century, it was, during the period of penetration and colonial occupation, an important French strategic position and one of the main stages of the Trans-Saharan track.
