Travel guide to Rissani

The setting of Rissani is very much like what you find in villages near the Nile in Egypt, in terms of building styles, number of people, heat and nature.
There are small canals running between heavily populated villages which all seem to be at least 50 years behind the development of the rest of Morocco. Even the centre of the area, the fairly developed city of Rissani, brought my mind to my last visit to Egypt.
Just outside the main gate of the city (or bab as the gates are known in the Moroccan vernacular) lies these ruins. The structures almost blend into the Saharan landscape, yet the ancient fortifications are still fairly obvious. At one time Rissani was home to the Filali people who would rise up to become a ruling dynasty over all of Morocco. The treacherous Moulay Ismail (more about him in my Meknes pages) was a descendant of those who came from Rissani. In present times Rissani is right at the very edge of civilization.
