Tours From Ouarzazate
With the aid of some Hollywood touch-ups, this Unesco-protected red mudbrick ksar (fortified village) appears to be stuck in the past, still resembling its heyday as an Almoravid caravanserai in the 11th century. It may look familiar to moviegoers from Lawrence of Arabia, Jesus of Nazareth (for which much of At Ben Haddou was rebuilt), Jewel of the Nile (note the Egyptian towers), and Gladiator. The Tamdaght Kasbah, a deteriorating Glaoui fortification topped by stork nests, is a less restored kasbah that can be found 6 km north of At Ben Haddou along the asphalt.
