Every North African town has a kasbah, a traditional administrative building made from mud and straw. This one, nestled against the High Atlas Mountains, is among the most impressive of its kind.

Nestled against the hill yet still close to the river, the ancient city fascinates tourists. Explore this UNESCO heritage site. A few families still live here but not enough maintenance is being done. Old walls are melting and we saw a recent

During climbing to the top of the hill enjoy narrow streets with small shops and you will be rewarded by beautiful view on the valley and mountains. Buy a cup of mint tea and enjoy the view on the Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou :-) BEAUTIFUL!
