Ksar Ait Benhaddou, Morocco

Ait Benhaddou (Berber: Ath Benhadu) is a fortified city, or ksar, along the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech in present-day Morocco. It is situated in Souss-Massa-Draa on a hill along the Ounila River and is known for its kasbahs, although they take damage with each rainstorm. Most of the town's inhabitants now live in a more modern village at the other side of the river; however, eight families still live within the ksar.

 

Ait Benhaddou has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987 and several films have been shot there. - wikipedia
