Fodor's Review

Just before the turn to Nectarome, La Safranière de l'Ourika has guided tours around its gardens of the valuable saffron plant. For the ultimate saffron experience, go around the end of October into mid-November, when the plants are in flower and you can even participate in the picking and drying process. There are plenty of other plants and trees to admire, as well as a few farm animals.
