Ait Ouazik

Ait Ouazik is a few kilometers away from Tazzarine. The village lies in a valley. You can still visit the ruins of a Kasbah. The attraction is the prehistoric site consisting of rock drawings. The drawings date from about 5000 years BC when the area was still steppe.

The drawings represent wild animals such as elephants, rhinos, giraffes, ostriches, buffalo, antelope, etc.  Also, geometric figures are found such as spirals, concentric arcs, and circles. All these figures refer to a period of hunting. Some scenes seem to indicate how hunting was performed in earlier times namely by using traps. Also, the drawings hint at the challenges of locating and approaching amidst the wilderness.
