Ouarzazate is located in the middle of a bare plateau south of the High Atlas Mountains. To the south of the town is the desert. Ouarzazate is an important holiday destination in Morocco, as a base for excursions across the Draa Valley and into the desert.
The Ouarzazate area is also a noted film-making location, with Morocco's biggest studios inviting many international film companies to shoot their films. Photo: Arne Hoel / World Bank
