4-days Morocco Self-guided Solo Tour

Ouarzazate tour 1st part; Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou

After we visited the Ait Benhaddou and have our lunch, we proceeded to the other major tourist parts of Ouarzazate city, nicknamed as "The door of the desert", of Ouarzazate Province. 

Ouarzazate is relatively small  and for Morocco quiet town, built mostly along main street - Avenue Muhammed V. Ouarzazate is situated at an elevation of 1,135 meters. Its name comes from a Berber phrase meaning "without noise" or "without confusion". The Ouarzazate area is a noted film-making location, with Morocco's biggest studios inviting many international companies to work here. Films such as Lawrence of Arabia (1962), The Living Daylights (1987), The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), The Mummy (1999), Gladiator (2000), Kingdom of Heaven (2005), Kundun (1997), Legionnaire (1998), Hanna (2011), and Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (2011) were shot here, as was part of the TV series Game of Thrones.
