Ouarzazatte - Sahatours

Ouarzazate, Kasbahs, Ait-Ben-Haddou (eng)

Ouarzazate known as 'The desert door' and the ' Hollywood of Africa'. Located near the Sahara, its fortified cities and its film studios make of Ouarzazate, a very attractive place.

Ouarzazate evokes both the High Atlas south skirt and the nearby desert. Countless adobe kasbahs, mountains and arid plains, valleys and lush oasis, palm trees and red or ochre earth villages are the charm of this area a tourist attraction.

The (fortress) ksar of Aït Benhaddou is one of the best preserved, if not the best, of all the Moroccan territory. At least it is the only one that, since 1987, enjoys the status of world heritage site, declared by UNESCO and located about 30 km northwest of Ouarzazate.

Very ornate adobe dwellings coalesce into a strong defensive wall, strengthened by towers.
