Join our 3 days from Marrakech to Merzouga desert and visit the Ouallywood of Morocco. This phenomenal city is halfway to the desert of Erg Chebbi and usually taken as a stop station for lunch. The city’s name is in Berber and it means “Without noise”. In Ouarzazate lies one of the international airports in Morocco that offers many tickets for those who are willing to do a quick desert trip. Like Ait Benhaddou this city is a good site for Movies and series and known worldwide.
The main places that most tourists visit at this site are the Atlas Studios and the Kasbah of Taourirt. Cinema Studio Atlas the main place where they shoot movies. As mentioned Morocco has many kasbahs, some even say they are more than a thousand. The Taourirt Kasbah is one of the most unique fortified villages in Morocco as it was built in the shape of a maze by the family of el Glaoui clan. Although this latter is one of the impressive Kasbahs in Morocco, it is less visited by tourists that usually prefer to pass by the Atlas studios and save time.
Finally, Ouarzazate is home to the biggest station of the concentrated solar power plant in the world. This reflects the importance of using natural resources in Morocco. However, our 3 day Marrakech itinerary doesn’t include this station as it is not allowed.
