The history of this region dates back millions of years: it constitutes a privileged geological sector, characterized by the presence of famous and spectacular footprints of sauropod and theropod dinosaurs, including the prehistoric site of Iroutane (Demnate region) and at various sites in the heart of the Ait Bouguemmez valley.

The region has seen the discovery of an almost complete skeleton of a sauropod called Atlasaurus imlajei, which is currently on display at the Museum of Earth Sciences in Rabat. The M’goun geopark is also full of fauna rich in endangered species, such as the Barbary sheep, the golden eagle, the bearded vulture and the Tamga panther.

In addition to the archaeological heritage, the site is rich in architectural and historical heritage of great value (kasbahs, ighermans, collective granaries and rock carvings).
