One of those building is Taourirt Kasbah diverted in 17th century (stop for pictures from outside the Kasbah ) . Why this town is nicknamed as Hollywood of Africa? Simply because it has been noted as a film- making location, with Morocco’s biggest studios inviting many international film companies to shoot their movies like: Lawrence of Arabia (1962), The Living Daylights (1987), The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), The Mummy (1999), Gladiator (2000), Kingdom of Heaven (2005), Martin Scorsese’s Kundun (1997) and Babel (2005) ,after Ouarzazate City we will drive about 30 km to reach the fortified city of Aït Benhaddou, built in the 11th century.

It is situated on a hill along the Ounila River and has some beautiful examples of Kasbahs, which unfortunately sustain damage during each rainstorm and windstorms. Most of the town’s inhabitants now live in a more modern village at the other side of the river; however, around five families are still living within this Kasbah.
