ZAGORA seems unpromising at first sight: a street-village with a few modern hotels and government buildings. Two things, however, redeem it. The first is its location: this is the most productive stretch of the Drâa -indeed, of all the southern valleys -and you only have to walk a mile or so out of the town (really little more than a big village) to find yourself amid the palms and oasis cultivation. The second is a distinct air of unreality. Directly behind the town rises a bizarre Hollywood-sunset mountain, and at the end of the main street is a mock-serious roadsign to Timbuktu ("52 jours" -by camel -if the border were open). Another draw for Zagora is its festivals. The Drâa's big event, the Moussem of Moulay Abdelkader Jilali, is celebrated here during the Mouloud, and like other national festivals here, such as the Fête du Trône, is always entertaining.
