Ouarzazate Tailormade Holidays

Ouarzazate originally was a small trader town enroute to Europe and northern cities in Morocco and was a garrison town during the French period. The wide Avenue Muhammed V is the main street, from which everything is easily accessible.

Ouarzazate Kasbah is well maintained and the best view of it is from the other side of the river, fringed by palm trees. The Palace of Glaoui was never inhabited by the ruling family Glaoui that had it built. It is a striking building and you can enter some parts of it.

Ouarzarate has one of the largest movie studios in the world, Atlas Studios and it is open to the public. Films shot here include Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra, Lawrence of Arabia, The Man Who Would Be King, Cleopatra, Kundun, Gladiator, Alexander, Kingdom of Heaven and Babel.

Ouarzazate is a good base for visiting Ait Benhaddou, Zagora and Todra Gorge, as well as the many Kasbahs in the area (some just ruins of former grand buildings), remote villages and date palm groves.
