Ouarzazate -- Morocco's Hollywood

Ouarzazate, Souss-Massa-Draa, Morocco
2 Kudos
Ouarzazate is known as Moroccan Hollywood! We took a small bus from Marrakech on our way to the Desert and stopped in this gem of a town. It's south of the Atlas mountains and definitely a must see if on your way to Zagora! The main part of the town is on a hill and looks like it's made out of clay. The architecture is very unique, giving this town it's own sense of character. It's no wonder so many famous movies/shows such as Gladiator, The Mummy and Games of Thrones have been filmed here. You are even able to tour a typical house and see how the locals of the town live. You will also see donkeys all around transporting food and materials for the people. Locals fill water ways washing their clothes with simply just a bucket and some soap. The culture in Morocco is very different and interesting to explore. Visiting places like this allows you to see the beauty that fills this county.
