The barn

The harvests of grains are stored in barns to keep them safe throughout the year and to prevent someone from stealing them.

Inside ksars, there is a little barn in each house.

In some villages which have no walls, a fortified community barn gives security to the families who live there. Sometimes this building is placed under the symbolic protection of a shrine.

Nomad tribes had also long ago hidden barns on top of some gullies in the Great Atlas Mountains.
