The striking site and its prestige as a holy city attract many visitors to Moulay-Idriss. Topping two rocky spurs, Khiber and Tasga form two distinct quarters, almost two villages. Their snug houses separated by a maze of alleyways descend in intertwining grey and white cubes to a mausoleum with a green tiled roof. This is the resting place of Idriss I, the "father of Morocco".
