Aït Benhaddou

Aït Benhaddou 

Aït Benhaddou is an ighrem (fortified village in English) (ksar in Arabic), along the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech in present-day Morocco. Most citizens attracted by the tourist trade live in more modern dwellings in a village on the other side of the river, although there are four families still living in the ancient village. Inside the walls of the ksar are half a dozen (Kasbahs) or merchants houses and other individual dwellings, and it is a great example of earthen clay architecture, which is also used in Moroccan architecture.

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