📝 The Ksar of Aït Benhaddou is located 25km from Ouarzazate, in southern Morocco. It remains the only UNESCO World Heritage site in this part of the country, as it used to be an important outpost along the former caravan route between the Sahara Desert and Marrakech. The area’s particularity lies in the fact that the whole village is built from mud bricks, using the adobe technique. The views from its hilltop are amazing while, from this perspective, we can immerse ourselves in visiting the old village with its numerous kasbahs. Some parts of the TV series Game of Thrones were shot in Aït Benhaddou, along with several other famous movies such as The Mummy, Gladiator, The Sheltering Sky, The Jewel of the Nile, Kundun and The Kingdom of Heaven.
