A veritable cornucopia of fossils and minerals, all found locally. Some of the pieces are spectacular. The prices aren't the cheapest but the standard of workmanship is high. Worth a visit.
Beware of the tourist trap! Aside from the fact that the only reason tours bring you here is to entice you to spend your disposable income, this place is awesome. They hand carve sinks, tables, murals and an assortment of other household items from slabs of rock that once sat at the bottom of the ocean hundreds of millions of years ago. All of the slabs are filled with fossils of cephalopods or squids or jellyfish or starfish. Wicked cool place to stop and gaze into Morocco's past.
