All reviews across the river game of thrones world heritage site fortified village worth the climb stepping stones lawrence of arabia from afar movie set souvenir shops ancient city atlas mountains local guide day trip well worth the visit beautiful kasbah long drive
A really interesting place- a n old kasbah (currently only 5 families), a nice trek up to the watch tower - great views of the surroundings ( and the gladiator arena) plenty of artefact shops with lot of artists around
Located in the foothills on the southern slopes of the High Atlas in the Province of Ouarzazate, the site of Ait-Ben-Haddou is the most famous ksar in the Ounila Valley. The Ksar of Aït-Ben-Haddou is a striking example of southern Moroccan architecture. The ksar is...More
Yes, it is part historical site and part movie set. If you can accept this fact, you will enjoy it because it really is an amazing site. You park in the new town on the main road in front of the mosque - don't pay...More
Interesting to experience this Ksar to understand how they lived back then especially when under siege, but place lacks proper maintenance. Could have been a better experience if there was someone to explain or some type of info to read whilst walking from room to...More
Once you are here you will feel that you’re emerging yourself to a Moroccan way life. It was nice to see where some of the scenes in Gladiator, Game of Thrones, Lawrence of Arabia, etc. was taken. Nice view from the top.
This is the classic Moroccan kasbah. the setting is superb across from the new town across the dry river bed. It has clearly been refurbished for various movies but it still retains it's character and is a worthwhile visit it passing through on your way...More
We joined to an organized 2-day trip, and our first stop was in Äit Ben Haddou. The view was spectacular and the tour guide told a lot of interesting things.
Though don’t buy anything in here or around: it’s a tipical tourist attraction and prices...More
It’s a stunning site and very photogenic from a distance and also some good pics to be had from near the top. Wear trainers for walking around. Without someone telling you which rooms were which you wouldn’t know. There are vendors within the site, they...More
Well, this place looks very good and the views from atop the hills are definitely worth the climb. It is absolutely gorgeous and quite different from other places you will visit.
However, it is hyper touristy and there is absolutely nothing genuine about the place....More
Easy! If you are used to drive through the mountains like the Alpes for example, or something alike than this would be no issue. We did it this winter with our little family with our small Fiat 500. Not the most powerfull... More
Easy! If you are used to drive through the mountains like the Alpes for example, or something alike than this would be no issue. We did it this winter with our little family with our small Fiat 500. Not the most powerfull car, but we didn’t need more. Stop once a while to enjoy the view. In the mountains, there are enough bars for a drink or food.
There aren't a lot of options for food, accommodation or activities in the town in my opinion, so since you have a car I'd recommend a day trip to visit the site. The climb to the top isn't very difficult/long for someone of... More
There aren't a lot of options for food, accommodation or activities in the town in my opinion, so since you have a car I'd recommend a day trip to visit the site. The climb to the top isn't very difficult/long for someone of average fitness, depending how much you want to explore you probably wouldn't need more than 2-3 hours max.
