2 reviews of Valley of Roses

Valley of the Roses

The valley of the M'Goun River, also called Rose Valley, is the major producer of the much appreciated Rosa damascene rose. From the beginning of May the women gather the flowers one by one which serve as the basis for making various cosmetic products, including the valued rosewater. After the harvest the inhabitants of the neighboring villages and people from all corners of Morocco gather in the town of El Kelaa Mgouna to celebrate the great festival of "The Moussem of Roses". During this three-day festival there is a program of folk songs and dances.
