About 30 km northwest of Ouarzazade, Aït Benhaddou is a sun-dried brick village built on the slope of a hill by a stream. The Berber fortified village of Ksar remains in many places in Morocco, but it is known as one of the best-preserved Ksar. It is a beautiful complex of earth-toned buildings and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Ouarzazade is a major transportation hub located high on the outskirts of the Anti-Atlas Mountains. It is served by a number of attractive scenic roads, including the mountain road over the pass to Marrakech in the north, and the Kasbah road, which leads east to Errachidia, where a number of fortified villages remain. The desert oasis of Ouarzazade, surrounded by dynamic nature, is also known as the center of the film industry, and the film studios that have produced numerous masterpieces are popular tourist attractions.
