Ouarzazate is a  dazzling city surrounded by dramatic landscapes! Strategically located at the crossroads of the main routes leading to the Draa, Dades and Ziz Valleys, Ouarzazate was settled and fortified by the French as a garrison in the late 1920s. Since then, it has become a center for craft, tourist and movie industries.

Ouarzazate is also known as Morocco´s Hollywood. Scenes from Bertulucci´s “The Sheltering Sky”, Spielberg´s “The Gladiators”, “The Last temptation of Christ”, and “Lawrence of Arabia” were shot in and around this area.

Ouarzazate is also renowned for its Berber ceramic work and fine carpet making. Main attractions include the Kasbah Taourirt, the souk and the nearby famous Ait- Benhaddou Kasbah which is included as part of all of our Morocco Vacation Packages.  Ouarzazate is also a must stop destination for travelers wishing to explore the Atlas Mountains region.
