Tamansourt is a new Moroccan city located in the prefecture of Marrakech. It depends on the rural commune of Harbil.
This city was founded in 2005, under the patronage of King Mohammed VI, in order to prevent Marrakech from overpopulating and congestion. It was planned to house a population of 400.000 people and so far it has reached the number of 50.000 inhabitants.
Tamansourt has the purpose to become a green city, actually it is rich of green areas equipped with public economic and low consumption lighting system.
Since its creation this city attracted many Moroccan and foreign real estate investors, but unfortunately, as the years pass the more the city is sinking into the image of a dormitory town.
