The incredible village of Aït Benhaddou is located on the old caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakesh in the present day country of Morocco. Experience this striking example of southern Moroccan architecture and be amazed by the houses crowded together within the defensive walls of the city. This ksar, or fortified city, has served as the background for film and TV such as Gladiator and Game of Thrones. Discover the magic for yourself.
