    I first visited the Painted rocks on my first visit to Tafraoute in 2003 – since saw them again in 2005 and 2007 and a number of times when started coming to Tafraoute more frequently from 2010. They were painted again 2 years ago for the first time since the original Belgian man painted them. I visited them again this May 2013 to drive the new road that comes from Aday village and goes across country to the road that comes from Tafraoute through Aguerd Oudad to Col Kerdous. The rocks around here are pink granite so very pretty especially when the sun is shining on them.
    Spring through to early summer there is lovely flowers and wheat growing around here and if you keep on the lookout you will see all sorts of wildlife such as lizards, squirrels and different varieties of birds. During winter the colours of the sky are really vivid and make all the surrounding rocks and plants very strong colours – even more beautiful.
    In January there is a music festival here at the rocks which I haven’t been to though. Ive usually come for the almond blossom festival in February or March or the music festival that is on in July each year in the town centre.
    The fact is they are in lovely countryside and make a nice walk to get to them, or rent a bike and cycle around the area. The dirt road from the rocks to the village of Aguerd Oudad with the rock formation called Napoleons Hat is also a lovely route to walk and comes out in the back streets of the village and into the main square there.

    These are a magnificent and unusual part of this lovely little town of Tafraout. Even though people seem to think because they have been painted by hand that they are not natural. But if you read into the reason that they where painted you will understand this was an expression of love not a reason to deface the landscape but to enhance the unusual shapes and unusual way the rocks sit on each other. This is only one small part of this lovely, still relatively unspoiled town. The people are friendly and helpful and it is great to see that in this world of rules and regulations that the children can still play outside without any of the worries of our society. I LOVE TAFRAOUT!!!!!!
