Aghmat Archaeological Site

Aghmat Archaeological Site, also Joumâa Aghmat, is an archaeological site located in Aghmat village in Marrakesh-Safi, Morocco. The site is the ruins of the ancient city of Aghmat, which was one of the most important cities of the Maghreb during the Idrisid rule (8th-10th centuries AD). The city later flourished during the rule of the Almoravids, and then became the residence of the exiled Taifa kings after the Almoravids conquered Al-Andalus (Iberian Peninsula). The village also includes the tomb of Al-Mu'tamid bin Abbad, which includes his tomb and the tomb of his wife, in addition to the tomb of his son.
