About Aït Ben Haddou

Aït Ben Haddou consists of a set of earthen buildings surrounded by high walls. The set is an excellent example of traditional pre-Sahara settlement. In the corners of the walls you will see 4m high towers. Aït Ben Haddou is considered a typical example of Moroccan cultural heritage. Up to the present time, there have been living 10 families but most of the inhabitants moved to other, more modern parts of the town, across the river. The ancient city of Aït Ben Haddou was often used by filmmakers. Perhaps the best known movies shot in this locality are The Mummy and Gladiator. Since 1987 the ancient fortified town Aït Ben Haddou has been the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
