Sijilmasa (also Sijilmassa, or Sigilmassa) was a mediaeval trade entrepôt at the Western edge of the Maghreb in what is now Morocco. The ruins of the city lie along the river Ziz in the Tafilalt oasis near the town of Rissani. The city's colorful history was marked by several successive invasions by Amazigh dynasties during the Golden Age of Berber Islam. Up until the 14th century, it was, as the terminus for the western Trans-Sahara trade route, one of the most important trade centres in the Maghreb during the "Golden Age" of the Moroccan dynasties.
