Ait Atta, Ait Sedrate, Ait Yafalmane are only a few of the Berber clans that have found the perfect habitat to develop their community in the area protected by the height of the High Atlas Mountains and encircled by the cities of Ouarzazate, Errachidia and Zagora. In fact, in this area the Berber tribes, sedentary and native, have merged with the Arab ones, foreign and nomadic, to create one social and cultural community which is very rich and complex. The buildings that rise in this desert area, named Ksour and Tighremt, are directly linked with local culture which represent, in some way, the emblem because both the technique and the materials are derived from the area. The presence of four big rivers, still rich in water, the fertility of the ground and the composition of the soil, this means that the technique of rammed earth can be used. This technique is useful for building wide, impressive, sumptuous buildings made with very poor local and renewable materials. Recently, in this area, many survey campaigns have been made involving many operators to make a documentation of the architectural heritage. The objective of this study is the systematic organization of the surveys, more than twenty tighremt and ksour, and at the same time, the elaboration of one strategy for the divulgation and valorisation of the heritage. Probably the mere survival of those buildings, really sensitive to the weather factors and the lack of maintenance, is linked more to local and global awareness than to concrete ideas of restoration.
