Ait Ben Haddou, See the Life of Berber World!


Ait Ben Haddou is one of the "must-see" places in Morocco.
This is a fortified town of old Berber people.
Not so many are living here now.

People remember this place because popular Hollywood movies such as Gladiator were shot here and now it's protected as one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites.



Looking down from the top of the hill. Small houses are like toys,




To get to AIt Ben Haddou from Marrakech, we drive over high Atlas mountains. You can enjoy the great view!
And take a lunch break with those panoramic views.



Berber villages in High Atlases are famous with its stones and potteries.



Inside the Ait Ben Haddou. It is like a maze, sometimes streets are the roof of someone's house.



From here, you can see the huge field where the film "Gladiator" was shot. Everyone wants to stop here to take photos!



Some people are still living inside the village, and they have been keeping their traditional life. You would feel like you are just back in 100 or 200 years ago.

Let's visit Ait Ben Haddou with us!
