Kasbah du Pacha el Glaoui, Telouet

#4 of 16 in Historic Sites in Souss-Massa-Draa Region
Delve into the world of the Lord of the Atlas at Kasbah du Pacha el Glaoui, home to T'hami el Glaoui, the early 20th century governor of Marrakesh and his family. This architectural site with several treed patios was T'hami el Mezouari's family residence from where he ruled the country as a warlord and chieftain of the Glaoua tribe between 1912 and 1956. Overlooking the Imarene River, the residence features typical local and Andalusian-style décor with ornate rooms that showcase the site's former luxury. Explore crumbling passageways and maze-like corridors. The entrance is guarded, but you can ask the guard at the entrance to open the residence and give you a tour (for an adequate tip). Our Telouet trip planner makes visiting Kasbah du Pacha el Glaoui and other Telouet attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • A great surprise on the road to Ait Ben Haddoi, especially if you have the chance to visit with Ali, a passionate and exciting guide

  • For 50 dirhams (approx. 5 €, plus 20 dirham admission) nice and informative guided tour by Ali. Without leadership, many details would be overlooked or not understood. From the outside, one does not suspect that some splendor is still preserved inside.
