The adobe brick and stone Igherm of Morocco.



This is an Igherm, a communal fortified granary, high in the Atlas Mountains in the Zawiya Ahansal region of Morocco. This one, some 400 years old, had fallen in to disrepair like many others in the region. It's made from stone and adobe brick and was restored in 2007 by local builders with the Atlas Cultural Foundation. Find out more about natural building in Morocco.
