Marrakech Travel Guide



Ouarzazate's location high in the Atlas Mountains made it a historically important waypoint for traders, and is today still inhabited by a few Berbers, though many parts of the area feel uninhabited. The picturesque city has many prominent kasbahs and other examples of traditional clay architecture, including Ait Benhaddou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Ouarzazate's primary business though, is movies, as it is home to the gigantic Atlas Studios, where many Hollywood blockbusters including Lawrence of Arabia, Gladiator, Cleopatra, and Star Wars were filmed. The town has a number of restaurants and souks in the town centre and along Mohammad V Street, where you can find good deals on regional specialties like judeo-berber vodka and Berber rugs.
