Day 5 : Tinghir – Ait Benhadou
Today we’ll travel along the “Route of 1000 Kasbahs” to the thriving town of Ouarzazate for a lunch stop. This town is home to Atlas Film Studios, where many films have been shot over the years, including “Lawrence of Arabia” and “Gladiator.” Continue on to the fascinating and beautiful Ait Ben Haddou, a wonderful example of a kasbah. Here we’ll take a guided tourof this the UNESCO World Heritage site. Of all the remaining Kasbahs in Morocco, the walls and interior of this area are the most intact. The Kasbah still houses a few families, but many now live in the adjacent village. Like many of the earthen built fortresses in Ouarzazate, Aït Ben Haddou has been used in many film and television productions like Gladiator, Babel, and Game of Thrones.
