Destination Info

Aït Benhaddou is an ighrem (fortified village), along the former caravan route between the former region of Sudan and Marrakesh in present-day Morocco. Most citizens attracted by the tourist trade live in more modern dwellings in a village on the other side of the river, although there are four families still living in the ancient village. Inside the walls of the ksar are half a dozen or merchant’s houses and other individual dwellings, and is a great example of Moroccan earthen clay architecture. Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou also serve as the perfect movie set for famous movies such as: Prince of Persia, A Man who would be king, Gladiator, Son Of God, Kundun and many more.

Ouarzazate is a city south of Morocco’s High Atlas Mountains, known as a gateway to the Sahara Desert. Its huge Taourirt Kasbah, home to a 19th-century palace, has views over the rugged local landscape, which features in several movies. Northwest is the fortified red-earth city of Aït Ben Haddou. Northeast is the rocky Todra Gorge. A road winds southeast through the Draa Valley’s lush palm groves to the desert.
