Ouarzazate, Morocco (pronounced war-zazat) is today’s featured destination for #g1photofriday. This quiet town is located just south of Morocco’s High Atlas mountains and is known as a gateway to the Sahara Desert. This city is the capital of Ouarzazate Province in Draa-Tafilalet region of south-central Morocco. Be sure to visit many of the prominent kasbahs in town, Ait Benhaddou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site to the west and the old town while here.
