At about 190 miles south-east Marrakech, in The other agents, can be found the wonderful town of Ait Benhaddou, also known as “Ksar Ait Benhaddou”. The “Ksar” in berber terminology, which is which of unique population of Northern African-american means an set up of prepared homes enclosed by a protecting wall, and a “Ksar” is usually located at the end of a hill, for making it even less penetrable and more difficult to be hit by unexpected back-attack.

A single prepared house is known as a “Kasbah”. In each town, there is a primary “Kasbah” the place to find the town innovator, with four long systems for making monitoring easy. The walkways and gates of the Kasbahs are little, you might think it is because that the population are little people but it’s not. The little paragraphs are a protecting way to avoid any organized and big strikes, the opponent has to go through limited locations making them insecure.

The real development date of Ait Benhaddou is unidentified, some say it returns again to the 11th millennium but others think it is a more latest development. What is sure, is that it is one of the most wonderful and well maintained historical towns in The other agents.

Before streets and automobiles, Ait Benhaddou was a place for the caravanes journeying between the southern part of Sahara and north African-american. They either return products here and turn returning to the wasteland, or stop for a night and continue through the Ounila area to Marrakech. The caravanes transferred sodium, gold and slaves among other things.

Today Ait benhaddou is a touristic fascination for two primary reasons: one being the UNESCO announcing the town as a world culture website. The second reason is because the film market used the website to capture moments of historical towns and remains seen in films. The most popular one is “The gladiator”, and the field you see in the film was designed on the areas just in front of the town. Lately the team of “Game of Thrones” also used the website to capture moments of the town of “Yunkai”.

The Ounila stream distinguishes the old maintained town and the new town, where most of the family members currently stay. Seven family members still stay in the old part, and you can get into one of the homes and have some great tea for twelve dirhams (Moroccan currency).

To achieve the town, you need to get transport either from Marrakech or Ouarzazate ( ~35km from the site). Many of the normal cabs provide this service, but you can also contact a travel agency to set up your journey. Local books are available if you want further assistance discovering the town and Many dining places in the new town provide delightful foods at cheap prices. The website offers a great opportunity for photography lovers to take some amazing photos and test their skills even though Morocco’s sun is a big help you don’t get in numerous locations.
