Originally, Erfoud was a French garrison, set up in 1917 in order to "pacify" South-East Morocco. It thus presents the aspect of an administrative city, with large avenues lined with tamarisk trees, the two main ones being Moulay Ibrahim and Mohammed V avenues, which cross perpendicularly at the post office. Here, women become ghosts, hidden under a black veil covering them from head to toe. A town of 10,000 inhabitants, Erfoud is of little interest other than being the ideal starting point for trips to Rissani, the cradle of the Alaouite dynasty, or excursions into the desert around Merzouga. On the road to Er-Rachidia, you will find many small fossil museums, which are actually merchants. A few kilometres from Erfoud, the kasbahs of Al Jofr and Maadid, on the right, can be good visits.
