    Hotel Tomboctou caring with the heritage

    Hotel Tomboctou collaborates with several associations of Todra valley. This allows our customers to visit the premises of these associations, where women make many craft work, such as embroidery, tailoring, knitting and even manufacture of couscous by traditional methods.

    0.7% of the hotel turnover of 2013 and 2014 was destined to the conservation of the medersa Ikelane in collaboration with the Afanour Association for Development.

    2 km far from Tinerhir, the madrasa Ikelane is one of the most important monuments to visit in southern Morocco. It's placed into the Ksar Afanour and from 2007 it's open to visitors, also not muslims. The keeper provides very interesting information about the building and its history.

    We don't know the foundation date of the Ikelane mosque & madrasa. It may be very old, because presence of Ait Todra tribe in this valley is documented from the 12th century, but it's architectural style let us think that it has been probably rebuilt during the second half of 19th century, in the time when use of gypsum became usual in the region. The building had 4 different functions:

  • - Mosque of the quarter of Ikelane, one of the four clans that lived in the Ksar Afanour.
  • - School for village children.
  • - High School where were formed many Koran teachers of South Morocco.
  • - Hostel for students coming from other villages.
  • The whole were working as school till the 1970' years and as mosque till 1998, being after abandoned. In 2005 the Afanour Association for Development asked to the municipality of Tinerhir and to its tourist sector the economic help to restore the monument. Only the Hotel Tomboctou brought the sum of 3,000 DH, which they repaired just the praying hall roof. After, the big rains of December 2006 destroyed one wall and the half of the ablutions hall roof, wanting of maintenance. The Association found the money to rebuild the fallen part thanks to generosity of two groups of Catalan architects who visited the region in March 2007. They gave a total of 32,345 dirhams. But this amount was not sufficient to restore the facade, which is very degraded. The covered entrance was partially rebuilt in 2005, but it needed a more serious intervention. This last reconstruction started in April 2014 with a budget of 20,000 DH given by Hotel Tomboctou and the help of other persons and institutions.
