Aday is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful villages around Tafraoute. It therefore contributes significantly to his fame. Built at the foot of a rocky chaos with polished pink shapes by erosion, the village grabs typical houses, some threatening ruin, others were happily colored. This is the mosque with its purple hue that gives its stamp to the site.
