Owner description: Sijilmassa (pronounced see-jill-moss-uh), a national historic site recognized by Morocco's Ministry of Culture, was the fabled and ancient Berber capital of the Tafilalet Kingdom located at the northern edge of the Sahara desert that once rivaled Marrakech. Founded in A.D. 757 On the banks overlooking the Oued Ziz, a river in the oasis region of the Sahara desert, Sijilmassa grew wealthy and powerful during the Middle Ages as a gold-trade-route city strategically located at the exit-point of the western Trans-Saharan caravan trade route -- which extended from the Niger River in the Sudan to Tangier in northern Morocco.

Although small this was the most beautiful courtyard of nature i came across in Morocco, lush green with a variety of tree planted, i think 5 different ones. Being a Non Muslim we were not allowed into the Mausoleum or the Mosque. A visit can be wrapped up under 5 to 10 minutes but this place calls ones to sit down and relax, unfortunately with a schedule to keep, more sites to visit, that was not possible.

I don't what's interests people to see in this mousuluem as i would better go and discover the old kasbahs around and go to the souk of rissani more worth it.
i would skip Moulay Ai Cherif Mousuluem with eyes closed.
