Day trip to Telouat and Ait Ben haddou:
Ouarzazate's only real sight of historical interest is the former El Glaoui palace, the Taourirt Kasbah. The el Glaoui clan controlled one of the major southern caravan routes to West Africa and were given extensive power by the French duri...ng colonial rule in exchange for keeping the southern tribes subdued. The Taourirt Kasbah was built in the 19th century and reached the height of importance during the 1930s, when the el Glaoui powers were at their peak.
After the high atlas by one of the most famous passes of Morocco, the tizi-n-tichka 2260 meters. After the pass you aregoing to visit a historic place. Kasbah Telouat was once place of birth of the Pasha of Marrakech, with this dubious history the kasbah is coming down more and more, but some of the rooms are still giving an idea of the abundance of the pashas family. Visite of the Kasbah, then road by Ounila valley to Ait-benhaddou: Is the famous village(ksar) has been the scenery for many cinema production, many films (thé in Sahara, Gladiator, Game of thrones and prince of percia...).
