Every North African town has a kasbah, a traditional administrative building made from mud and straw. This one, nestled against the High Atlas Mountains, is among the most impressive of its kind.

Ait Ben Haddou is totally worth the visit. It is a magical little village in the middle of nowhere. Beautiful architecture and landacapes. The online reason I don’t give it 5* it’s because it is no longe authentic, you have no localizado living in there,...More

I am sharing about the Kasba where many movies were filmed like Hanna and Lawrence of Arabia... The guide did a good job (free of charge) touring us around and explaining with details and dates what this kasba witnessed. I am a history lover and...More

We stayed nearby and enjoyed walking over, across the river and past the Kasbahs to the top of the hill. There was a picture worthy scene around every corner and I enjoyed looking at and buying the local merchandise. Well worth a visit.

An incredibly beautiful multifaceted jewel of desert archtecture. We liked the outside and its views best. The vendors along the way were not pushy at all.

This was a great place to visit. We were part of a tour group and our guide gave us a lot of interesting information. The walk to the top is a little challenging but the view makes it well worth it.

The is a UNESCO site but I did not notice a lot of signage. There is a short steep-ish climb to the top with many vendors along the way. It's worth the effort for photos. And a nice selection of artwork.

Worth an hour or two to walk through and explore. Very well preserved. If you're lucky they might be filming (which they were when we were there). It's easy to get to from Ouarzazate or if you have your own vehicle coming from Marrakech it's...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... More
