Mzoura stone circle

Msoura (also Mzoura) is an archaeological site of a stone circle in northern Morocco. It is located 25 kilometres south of Asilah, and consists of 167 monoliths surrounding a tumulus of almost 55 metres of diameter. One of the monoliths, known as El Uted (the pointer) measures more than 5 m. Legend claims it is the tomb of the giant Antaeus.

As of 2009, the site is connected to the coastal town of Asilah by a tarmac road.
