Morocco

The most beautiful spots of the world

Morocco with the Atlas Mountains and the Imperial Cities is always worth a trip.

1Marrakech


Place Djemāa el-Fna in Marrakech, Morocco, at twilight. This square is the most famous tourist hotspot in Marrakech. It is located at the south end of the souk area. In the evening snake charmers, jugglers and fire-eaters are the main attractions besides the cookshops and market stalls of the souk. In the left background a large cinema screen which was setup for the International Film Festival of Marrakech which takes place every year end of November, beginning of December. Behind the cinema screen the tower of Koutoubia Mosque.

2Ait Ben-Haddou

First morning light on Ait Ben-Haddou (also transcribed as Ait Benhaddou). In the background at the horizon the snow covered mountains of the Atlas.

Ait Ben-Haddou is a so called Ksar (fortified village) in the southeast of Morocco. It lies at a small hill at the foot of the High Atlas mountain range. A caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech used to pass this village at the Ounila River.
The old town area consists of Kasbahs, fortified houses built from adobe.

Ait Ben-Haddou with its earthen architecture is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987. Several films like “Sodom And Gomorrah”, “Gladiator” and “Prince of Persia” have been shot here.
