Located under the foothills on the southern slopes of the High Atlas, in the Province of Ouarzazate and on the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech, the site of Ait-Ben-Haddou is the most famous ksar and a striking example of southern Moroccan architecture. It illustrates perfectly the traditional earthen habitats, which have become vulnerable as a result of irreversible socio-economic and cultural changes. Since 1987 it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A must stop on your Morocco road trip! On your way up the hill you will find this small balcony where you can rest and drink mint tea, prepared by a really nice Berber woman.
