Therefore, when you bid farewell to the big cities that were crawled by the cement, Moroccan villages welcome you with their picturesque landscapes and attractive archaeological sites, despite the fact that some of them are still unknown due to the lack of tourism promotion of the cultural and civilizational heritage, whether through the organization of international cultural activities that attract participants from all sides. Or encourage civil society associations specialized in valuing heritage, or by putting up billboards that entice tourists to visit them.
The south of Morocco is one of the regions that abound with distinct tourist sites. Sites that a Moroccan must first know, research their history, enjoy their geography, inhale their gentle breeze, and drink from their gentle springs.
The oasis of “Tiout” (with the breaking of the ta and the tightening of the ya and its annexation, and the housing of the last ta) is considered relative to the hump of the camel due to its convex height at the foot of the mountain in the middle of several heights and is one of the tourist sites hidden behind the slopes of the Anti-Atlas. It is located about 30 km southeast of the city of Taroudant via the Igram-Tata regional road, and it is inhabited by an active population of more than 3000 people, in which the youth group has the lion’s share.

Tiout Oasis day trip from Taghazout
“Tiot” includes a commercial and industrial center famous for the cultivation of sugar cane, which was used at the time in the production of sugar molds in several factories whose ruins are still steadfast in the face of the ravages of time and humans, in addition to being known for the presence of abundant water springs that are still, to this day, abundant in their waters on The area had gone through a phase of depletion due to attraction. Then the leader “Mohammed bin Ibrahim Al-Tiouti” revived it during the protection period, provided it with irrigation channels and engines, and built huge tanks to collect its water in order to organize irrigation and agriculture operations.
In the agricultural field, the region was historically distinguished by its lush trees that spread in its various plain areas, and its people modernized traditional methods to exploit its abundantly flowing throughput in setting up water-powered grain mills called in Berber “Ezrkan Nawaman”, and it consists of a wooden fan “chaf” and a millstone made of stone “Azark”, They are traditional mills that are not affected much by the factors of time, as much as they are affected by human neglect. Of the dozens of water mills, only one is left, which is constantly being restored.

In the aspect related to customs and traditions, the region was known for its traditional dress and the “shooting” season, which was an opportunity to train the region’s youth in archery and martial arts, as well as an opportunity to create a competitive atmosphere among the people of the areas surrounding the center of the “Tiout” group, especially in the arts of Ahwash and Dakka Al-Hawaria The area was also famous for organizing a series of religious rituals, such as “Tiult n al-Talba” and “Esaween”.
In addition, the area was known to be stable for Moroccan Jews, especially in the Mellah and in an area called “du Wudin” which means “the slum of the Jewish Quarter.” Shmaiha,” a Jewish shrine from ancient times until today.
Real kernel of large govt
Despite receiving a significant number of foreign tourists, and despite the efforts made by the local community to upgrade the area and restore its consideration, it remains one of the areas that suffer from both issues as much as it suffers from the futility of studies carried out on the area by many intervening parties. Studies exhausted the region and plunged its inhabitants into a cycle of waiting for promises to be fulfilled and for the needs of a population suffering from poverty, lack of income-generating projects, and high unemployment.
Rehabilitation of the jewel of Sous will be through encouraging domestic tourism, encouraging development projects and cultural activities adopted by active associations in civil society in the horizon of creating dynamism in the rural community and making it more capable of innovation, creativity, and continuity in giving. The Tiout Oasis is a cradle for scholars and memorizers of the Qur’an. It is an inexhaustible reservoir of talents that are waiting to be discovered and taken by the hand. It is also fertile land for agricultural development projects as it was known before, as the land produces a large amount of wheat, barley, and other grains and vegetables, in addition to the sugar cane that grows in abundance.
