Rissani is the last village on the Ziz River, the desert begins here. Most of the inhabitants still live in the 18th century ksar, a maze of dark almost troglodyte passages. Five minutes walk west of Rissani lies the ruined site of the first independent kingdom of the south , the Sijilmassa, from the 8th to the 14th century. These are the ruins of the first Arab and Islamic city of Morocco. The ruins now have more or less disappeared.

Well worth visiting is the the kasbah of Oulad Abdelhalim, a magnificent imperial building. There is a circle tour of the other ksours beginning at Asserehine and ending at Sijilmassa. The ksour Tinrheras is a ruined ksour on a hill with an excellent view of the Tafilalt region.
