A desert city

Ouarzazate is a good basecamp to explore 2 of the nicest valleys in Morocco: The Draa Valleys (to the south, towards Zagora) and the Kasbah Valley (to the east, towards Erfoud).
Besides, the city has a wonderful kasbah that can be visited inside and is very near of the cinema-famous kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou.

A nice trip from Marrakesh

Although Ouarzazate has airport, most of the visitors come from Marrakesh, and use it as a basecamp to explore nearby areas

    Hi looked at yr page here a number of times - dont know why Ive not left a comment - but your watercolour is very beautiful. A lovely way of capturing the specialness and beautiful colours of Morocco.

    The Kasbah looks beautiful. Especially in the watercolour picture.

    Hi, Thanks for your useful tips. I'm due to start an 8 day tour here, and I think I'm starting at La Palmeraie, it looks like a good place to stay! Best Wishes, Sue.

    I'm thinking of going to the Sahara & this is on the way. Taking a peep... just wondering what it's like...

    Nice page. I was in Ouarzazate in 1975 and .. no pictures. My camera didn't like the sand.

    6 families have that beautiful place all to themselves! (well, besides the tourists and filmmakers!). Another great watercolor and page.
