Tamegroute’s green pottery is also very well known.The founders of the religious brotherhood Nasiriyya wanted to raise the status of the village of Tamegroute to that of a ‘Medina’, that is to say to make it a city.

However, today Tamegroute is a little village again, but the pottery has become its main characteristic.

It flows from the High Atlas mountains south-(east)ward to Tagounit and from Tagounit mostly westwards to the Atlantic Ocean somewhat north of Tan-Tan. Most of the year the part of the Draa after Tagounit falls dry. Zagora is a town in the valley of the Draa River in Souss-Massa-Drâa, southeastern Morocco. It is flanked by the mountain Zagora from which the town got its name. Originally it was called ‘Tazagourt’ referring to the fortress of the Murabitun, or Almoravid. In old European maps the mountain Zagora is already indicated but the town itself was only built in the 20th century. On the top of the Zagora mountain the remains of an Almoravid fortress can still be seen. The exact location of the former Almoravid mosque is still a matter of dispute. Each year the moussem (festival) of the Sufi saint moulay Abdelkader Jilali is celebrated at Zagora. Languages spoken in the city include Moroccan Arabic, Tachelhit and Tamazight. A well known sign at the town border states ‘Tombouctou 52 days’, the supposed time it takes to get to Timbuktu, Mali on foot or camel. drive to Marrakech via the Anti Atlas Mountains of Saghrou, arrive to Marrakech in the afternoon.
