Hi, I am the ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou. You may remember me from such films as…

Gladiator. Kingdom of Heaven. Alexander. Lawrence of Arabia. It’s just a small selection of movies filmed at the ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou. Even some scenes of Game of Thrones were filmed here.

Besides being a popular film backdrop, it’s also a remarkable construction, a walled and fortified collection of kasbahs glued to the slope of a hill. This mudbrick city was built along an ancient caravan route between the Sahara desert and Marrakesh. It was quite the experience, especially because we went on a dromedary ride around the ksar. Definitely an unforgettable place!
