Home to the largest oasis in Morocco, Tafilalet was named by the Amazigh people (aka Berbers) for the pottery jars they filled with water from underground springs. During the Middle Ages, the life-giving waters made the region a natural stopping point for caravans traveling from the Niger River to Tangier on the northern tip of Morocco and the gateway to Europe. These days Tafilalet is known mainly for its huge crop of dates, most of which are exported.
