Did you know? Very close to Guilb er Richat are the remains of the former Portuguese fort of Agouedir (also: Aghouedir). Built in the 15th century, it represented, along with the fort of Arguin, the only Portuguese possession in the territory of present-day Mauritania. The short detour to the western edge of the Richat structure is worthwhile for the handcrafted artifacts offered there alone.
The Guilb er Richat is embedded in various tours that lead into the Adrar. In principle, we always recommend combining a visit to Ouadane with the Guilb, as this is an entertaining trip with a worthwhile natural destination.
