About place: Ouarzazate

The city of Ouarzazate is 350 km of Agadir and 200 km of Morocco. The city itself isn’t a significant tourist center but definitely, there is something to see in its environs.

There you can see the appearance of medieval Moroccan fortresses or kasbas. They are clay constructions built in characteristic Berber style. And some of them are rather picturesque, especially those, which are best preserved.

But surely, Ait-Ben-Haddou is the most interesting kasba, included in UNESCO heritage list. It is located only 10 km of Ouarzazate if you go to Marrakesh. There is also a well-preserved kasba in the center of Ouarzazate. It is a kind of historical site of the city. There are many hotels and various souvenir shops around it.

If you don’t want to stay in Ouarzazate, you may go further east down the road of «thousand kasbas». Indeed, there are many kasbas along the way, but most of them are destroyed. The most interesting kasba is Meridiel in Skura, but you can not see it, as well as other citadels, from the road, so you must take care not to miss them when you travel alone.

Todra Gorge near Tenerhir is also rather interesting. To be more exact, it is just interesting, and not unique and wonderful, as they usually put it in some tourist guides.
