Ouarzazate Travel Guide: 145 reviews and 457 photos

busy regional crossroads town with lots happening

A laidback yet busy town along the major access roads to Zagora and the Draa Valley in the south, the Tafilalt in the east, marrakech in the north and Taroudannt in the west providing services of a provincial town for a large area and also now busy as a town servicing the needs of the film industry with yet another film studio opened.

town with history- Glaouis were here also

The Glaouis were also here, as was their headquarters nearby at Telouet, being central to their access routes to the areas they maintained control and power over and here is still Palace Taouorirt which is able to be visited but does provide a major landmark as you go through town.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:interesting town with a buzzy sort of atmosphere but laid back, good patisserie and services available for the tourist traveller,

    I have often been to Morocco but the only time we were driving to Ouarzazate, there was such a terrible sand wind that we gave up! Thanks for the virtual visit ! Fortunately, I was to Telouet, an outstanding site !

    I will have to get my Ouarzazat page done too sometime. I also thought Ouarzazat was laidback too, even small taxi drivers weren't in a rush! I will get to re-read all your Ouarzazat tips again sometime.
