Morocco - 171

Eventually we arrived at the stunning Unesco world heritage site of Ait- Benhaddou. It is a fortified city or kzar along the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech.It sits on the Ounila River and consists of many Kasbahs. Several films have been shot here including Lawrence of Arabia, Jewel of the Nile, The Mummy, Gladiator, Alexander and the kingdom of Heaven. It has a strong Berber Heritage which continues today. The building on the summit is the grain storage.
