El Gour is part of the Tentative list of Morocco in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

El Gour comprises a tumulus from the 4th century BC. It is a circular burial mound that might have been built for a high-ranked person.

El Gour (T) by Zoë Sheng

It's always suspicious when something in the middle of a hot spot of THREE big sites is not reviewed and hardly visited. So maybe because you need a car but also because it's absolutely horrible.

No sign at the road, not even at the site, zero is known about it only that it may have been from a high ranking official (not Al Gore!) and there seems to be zero research about it. There is a wide area for parking in front of the tomb and a local waved me in when I asked, unsure if he's a caretaker or just lives there randomly but you wanna be polite as a guest.

Inside the gate you can walk around it and even climb the top but it's all the same view plus variety of trash.

It seems this was already rejected to be included on the world heritage list and just waiting to be removed: good riddance.
