History in Erfoud

Edit This
Erfoud is in the Tafilelt. This region used to be the most important place of departure for the cross saharan caravans. From the city of Sijilmassa, which is not far from Erfoud, they would leave for Ghana and Tombouctou. In the 14-th century the Genoans had an embassy here.

Since then things went down the slope gradually. Rissani is however the place where the present dynasty settled before they took power. The tomb of the founder of the Alaouite dynasty is still to be found here.
