During this 7 days desert tour from Agadir to Merzouga, we will take to visit a number of beautiful places such as Marrakech, Ait benhaddou and Merzouga. Down below, we have written some paragraphs about these places.
Marrakech, the red city:
The “Red Pearl of the South”, as Marrakech is called, is one of the four royal cities located in the central part of the country. Its long and rich history is evidenced by an above-average number of monuments. In the 12th century, the city became the capital of the empire, and in the 17th century it became a commercial centre as caravans passed through on their way to the interior of Africa. In the 19th century, King Moulay Hassan settled here, during whose reign magnificent palaces were built.
The city is landmarked by the Koutoubia Mosque with its minaret almost 80 metres high and the Jemaa-el Fna Square, where a mystical theatre is staged every evening. Here, jugglers, snake charmers, belly dancers and storytellers gather. Also, people visit there teh tombs of the Saadians where more than 60 members of the royal Saadian dynasty are buried. The palace of el-Bahia has been preserved almost in its entirety, with 150 rooms, where the vizier Ba Ahmed kept his harem of 100. Marrakech, with its wonderful atmosphere from the tales of a thousand and one nights, will evoke unforgettable experiences amidst palm trees, fountains and the remains of old fortifications.
The Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou:
Undoubtedly, Aït-Ben-Haddou is the most picturesque town in Morocco. Aït-Ben-Haddou is a ksar built against a hill. A ksar is a fortified city and in this case, is made entirely of wood and loam. Perhaps Aït-Ben-Haddou looks familiar to you because it is often used as a film set. Famous movies and series like Game of Thrones and Gladiator have been shot there.
During your visit to Aït-Ben-Haddou, you feel as if you are going back many years in time. It was built around the year 750 by the Berbers and it is particularly well preserved. It is named after the leader Ben-Haddou. They also say that Ben-Haddou is buried under the kasbah. This ancient city was the hub for trade routes between Marrakech and the Sahara.
The cinema city of Ouarzazate:
Tibetan monasteries, Egyptian temples, and biblical cities converge on the edge of Morocco’s desert-like Atlas Mountains. Here in the southwestern part of the country is home to Moroccan Hollywood. Meet Ouarzazate, aka Ouallywood.
The Moroccan city of Ouarzazate is home to the world’s largest film studio of all, called the Atlas Film Studios. Quite appropriately, then, Ouarzazate is called Ouallywood. The reddish-brown, desert-like void regularly transforms into a playing field of action.
More than two hundred films and television series have been shot at these studios. The Atlas Film Studios serve as the setting for iconic films such as The Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, The Mummy, The Passion of the Christ, Game of Thrones and the recently released film Aladdin.
Merzouga Sahara desert:
Merzouga desert is the highlight of all Morocco tours starting from Agadir, Marrakech, Casablanca, and Fes. It is a large desert located in the southeast of Morocco. The charming dunes and the plenty of activities to try there make it a favorite tourist destination.
Riding camels in an excursion throughout the desert and spending the night in a Berber camp is recommended. At night, local Berbers will play Music for you under a wonderful sky full of stars.
