Reaching Ouarzazate is a great experience. The journey reveals a diversity of incredible landscapes, from breath-taking mountains to green valleys and palm trees, until you reach the edge of the desert. This traditional town has a lot to offer to its visitors. The city itself is worth seeing, but the surrounding area also has some great attractions to offer. Be inspired by Ait Benhaddou, a beautifully preserved Kasbah that is a UNESCO World Heritage site, or walks in the starry path of celebrities by taking a tour of Ouarzazate’s two movie studios.
