Ait Ben Haddou

4.8
Seen in numerous Hollywood films and TV shows, the ancient city of Ait Ben Haddou takes visitors on a journey back to the 17th century with its impressive South Moroccan architecture, boasting earthen clay dwellings in walled kasbahs. The residents of the World Heritage Site have long moved on to reside in a nearby village, but a few remain and usher visitors through their mud-brick homes. On a tour of Ait Ben Haddou, you can explore its forts and clay palaces, see the locations used in "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Gladiator," and enjoy the expansive desert views from the top of a former stopover on Morocco's caravan route. Ait Ben Haddou is in Souss-Massa-Draa Region. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Ait Ben Haddou and add them to your vacation plans using our Morocco trip planning app .
