OUARZAZATE

Ouarzazate is a city where different cultures and artistic traditions meet, point of departure for the oases. It stands at the crossroads between the Drâa valley-which reaches as far as Agadir-the Dadès which cuts through the High Atlas-and the Ziz, which feeds Tafilalet's vast stretches of palm grove before vanishing into the sands of Taouz.

A pair of magnificent kasbahs dazzle the visitor with their beauty-Taourirt and Aït Ben Haddou, 30 kilomètres from town itself Such is the reputation of these two architectural marvels that they were chosen as locations for films such as "Lawrence of Arabia" and "The Sheltering Sky". And, crowing glory, UNESCO has included the two kasbahs in its world heritage programme.

One can rest a while in one of Ouarzazate's luxury hotels before venturing into the desert. A wealth of wonders are on hand to delight the tourist.
