Ouarzazate, known as a Gateway to the Sahara Desert, is yours to discover! Enjoy panoramic views over the rugged local terrain from the huge Taourirt Kasbah, home to a 19th century palace, which has featured in quite a few movies. Discover the fortified red-earth city of Aït Ben Haddou to the northwest, and the rocky Todra Gorge to the northeast. To the southeast, through the Draa Valley’s dense palm groves, the golden desert awaits. The largest town in the Moroccan Sahara, Ouarzazate boasts of a rich history of being the converging point for African traders in the past who sought to reach the northern cities in Morocco and Europe. Expanded significantly as a garrison town and administrative center during the French period, this unique city offers enriching experiences around every corner!
