Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah is an ancient fortified city used by the silk road merchants and camel herds from Sahara to Marrakech. Because of the magnificent backdrop, this kasbah had been the set of many famous Hollywood movies, such as Lawrence of Arabia, Gladiator, Mummy, Prince of Persia, Game of Thrones etc. since 1960s. In 1987, it is dedicated as a World Heritage Site and became a must-see for everyone traveling from Marrakech to the Sahara or vice versa.
