Fodor's Expert Review Salt Mines

Ouirgane Mine

It is worth negotiating the pot-holed road to the salt mines just off the Amizmiz road (stop at the turning for the Amizmiz road and walk the last part). For centuries, the Berbers have produced salt here but today's relatively low value of the once highly prized natural commodity has greatly endangered the livelihoods of the salt-mining families.
