Taroudant: Orientation, Arrival and Transport
Unlike many other Moroccan towns, Taroudant has no “European” quarter. It does seems at first sight very confusing, with miles of ramparts heading off in every direction and swathes of empty space and derelict buildings.
In fact, orientation is pretty easy around the compact centre of town. All amenities of importance are located on or near the two central squares: Place Alaouyine (known by its Berber name Place Assarag) and Place en Nasr (also known as Place Talmoklate). You’ll find banks, restaurants and cafes clustered in this area and the souk between them to the north.
