From there to Zagora, the road follows the Draa River and its rosary of palm groves producing famous dates and sprinkled with up to fifty casbahs (Berber houses built on rammed clay) and Ksours (walled Berber villages). The Draa was, in the antique, a permanent stream, the longest one of Morocco. Today its waters, that take birth close to Ourrzazate disappear in the sand after having covered up to 250km.
