Errachidia or Er-rachidia (Berber languages: Imteɣren) is a province located in eastern central Morocco in the region of Drâa-Tafilalet. Errachidia is bordered by Algeria to the southeast and by the Moroccan provinces of Figuig to the northeast, Midelt to the north, Tinghir to the west, and Zagora to the southwest. It is considered to be one of the most historically important regions of Morocco.

Errachidia, whose former name is Ksar Souk, was named My Rachid, in tribute to one of the main founders of the Alaouite dynasty, the current Moroccan royal family.
