  Ait Ben Haddou
by sachara

When we arrived in Ait Ben Haddou, we started to sit on the terrrace of our hotel with a fantastic view at the Oued Ounila and the kasbah at the other side of the oued.
We tried to imagine the real history of the kasbah with its high defensive walls ''as a pre-saharan habitat'' during the time of long-distance-trade overland between the north and south through the Sahara.
The kasbah is in recent days more known as the decor for historical films like Lawrence of Arabia.

Directions: Take the side road 18 KM west from Ouarzazate.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
