THE DAY TRIP ITINERARY TO OUARZAZATE AND UNESCO KASBAHS

Ouarzazate stands as a renowned destination for filmmakers worldwide, cherished for its unique cinematic ambiance and the quality of its light. Its cinematic prominence surged with the filming of “Lawrence of Arabia” in 1962, notably at the captivating site of Ait-Ben-Haddou, a small village near Ouarzazate now designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Ait Ben Haddou, situated just 30 kilometers from Ouarzazate, is a mesmerizing Kasbah (fortified city) immortalized in numerous cinematic masterpieces, including “Lawrence of Arabia,” “Gladiator,” “The Mummy,” and “The Nile Diamond.”

Kasbah Taourirt, another fortified city near Ouarzazate, showcases remarkable clay construction with two crenellated towers, standing as a testament to Morocco’s architectural heritage. Renowned for its pristine preservation, Kasbah Taourirt offers a glimpse into the rich history and craftsmanship of Moroccan kasbahs.
