Ait BenHaddou

Ait Benhaddou is one of the most exotic and best-preserved kasbahs in the entire Atlas region. This is hardly suprising, since it has been money poured into it as a result of being used for scenes in as many as 20 films, notably Lawrence of Arabia, Jesus of Nazareth (for witch much of the village was rebuilt), and most recently, Gladiator.
The kasbah's fame may endure in films but its population has dwindled in recent years.
The kasbah is now under Unesco protection.
