Ouarzazate

3.6

The door of the desert

Make Ouarzazate part of your Morocco itinerary as the gateway to the Sahara Desert. Enormous fort-like buildings, sandy streets, and palm trees characterize the hot, dry, desert-sided city located high in the Atlas Mountains. The city serves as a starting point for trips to the Sahara--the world's largest hot desert located just south. Translated to English, Ouarzazate appropriately means "without noise." The city is calm, though new residential areas and hotel complexes have recently popped up within the city walls. You may recognize the setting, as some of Hollywood's historic movies have been filmed here; the city features one of the world's largest studios in terms of physical size. Ouarzazate is in Souss-Massa-Draa Region. Make the most of your holiday in Ouarzazate by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Morocco online travel planner .
