The 15th day of the Daour, the Regraga caravan of pilgrims arrives from north (Akermoud) to Moulay Bou Zerqtoun ( Moula Dourayn=double turn). On the first tour, Laârossa (Moqadem of Akarmoud)and the khaïma (The sacred tent)go there. But Laârossa alone visit Essaouira - Diabat southwards and the khaïma stayes in Moula Dourayn. Laârossa returns and then the Daour continues north to the sacred mountain Jbel Lahdid where they visit Sidi Setta ou Settine - Sidi Ali Saiïh -Sidi Yaâcoub.

Three old saints, Moulay Bou Zerktoun, Sidi Haraz (Cap Sim) and Sidi Mogdoul
are the most important marabouts and they are protectors of the sailors.
