Once a very important religious centre, Tameslohte is a country town with a population of about 17,000 inhabitants, nestled in the plain and surrounded by orange and olive groves. This green oasis is home to two zaouias, forbidden to non-Muslims and were built by the sheriff Abdallah ben Hussein el-Hassani in the 15th century. According to legend, this sheriff, considered a holy man by his subjects, mastered 366 sciences! Today, pottery is an important activity in the city. A cooperative of about fifty craftsmen sends its production once a week to the souks of Marrakech. But the main know-how is the weaving of fabrics in natural materials, especially linen and cotton. The cooperative created to maintain this tradition and make a living out of it is well known. Lively and picturesque souk on Fridays.
