Morocco’s Film Set: Ait Benhaddou and Ouarzazate

During a trip to Marrakesh, I was keen to go and see Ouarzazate; one of the locations used in the film Gladiator. On the long drive to get there we stopped at Ait Benhaddou, which turned out to share a similar film history including Gladiator, The Mummy and TV series Game of Thrones. Whilst Ouarzazate was impressive, we were actually able to wander around Ait Benhaddou and in my opinion it was more impressive; this was what our day was all about.

  1. Lovely country. The only trouble was the youth were trying anything to get out of the country. The small towns seemed quite and caught in a time warp. There is a lot of potential there.
