Morocco // Agadir, the Souss and Anti-Atlas //


Eleven kilometres east of Taroudant, on the south bank of the Oued Souss, the ancient, fortified village Freija stands atop a hill rising above the Oued Souss. The oued is quite wide here, and usually dry, but when it does flood, the hill keeps the pisé (mud-brick) houses safely high and dry. As well as being quite picturesque, and a good spot for birdwatching, Freija affords sweeping views of the river, the fertile plains beyond, and the High Atlas.
