Stroll through Ouarzazate, Morocco's Hollywood


Do Ouarzazate’s ocher landscapes seem familiar to you? This city and its kasbahs, which blend into the rocky mountain, are the setting for movies like Lawrence of Arabia, Gladiator, and Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves. A visit to Atlas Studios is the perfect way to immerse yourself in its Hollywood-like atmosphere. Wandering through the famous sets is a fun experience for all ages.

Looking to discover authentic and traditional Ouarzazate? The city is equipped with several historic kasbahs, such as the Taourirt Kasbah, a majestic Berber building once home to the Pasha of Marrakesh. At the Ksar of Aït-Ben-Haddou, a fortified village about 30 minutes northwest of Ouarzazate, marvel at Moroccan architecture in all its splendor and see the locations that inspired your favorite Hollywood films.

Nature lovers, visit the magnificent Fint Oasis palm grove nestled among the orange cliffs. Dozens of fruit trees grow here, sheltered from the sun by tall palm tree leaves.
