The Province of Assa-Zag is a predominantly rural subdivision of the Moroccan region, a small town in southern Morocco, 100 km southeast of Guelmim, and 80 km southwest of Foum Zguid.
It has a population of 60,000 inhabitants today.
It is known for its oases by mountain tourists and especially by archaeologists who have several sites. One can discover a very impressive pre-Saharan research station founded by Jean-Bertrand Panouse.
The moussem Zaouia of Assa is a meeting not to be missed. People come from all over Morocco as well as members of the Ait Oussa tribe living abroad.
Cultural and religious events take place as is traditional on the occasion of the Prophet Mohamed's birthday, as the moussem coincides with the celebration of his birthday.
The Ahouach dance, Hassania poetry and Amazigh music form the main artistic dish of these meetings during which one can discover the rites and customs of the population.
