The Ounila River which separates the ancient city from the modern town of Aït Ben Haddou is not much more than a creek at this time of year. The dry riverbed is used as a shortcut to the town.

The fortified city, or ksar, of Aït Ben Haddou got its start in the 11th century as a trading post along the caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakesh. The existing earthen structures date from no earlier than the 17th century.

The ksar has been used as a set for many films from Oscar-winner “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962) to the TV series “Game of Thrones.”

The Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.

Ksar 31° 2’49.42"N, 7° 7’45.09"W

The existing earthen structures date from no earlier than the 17th century. The Ounila River which runs past the base of the ksar is nearly dry at this time of year.

The ksar has been used as a set for many films from Oscar-winner “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962) to the TV series “Game of Thrones.”

The Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
