When I travel to other countries...the thing I most want to do is to get a taste of the "real" life. This very old Kasbah in the middle of the beautiful and exotic city of Ouarzazate(built on a hill next to a lake at the gates of Sahara) was worth visiting.
Yes, its nothing more than a restored mud house...but wandering around with a local guide and listening to all the facts and tales was a nice way to spend our afternoon.

From the outside it looks like a ruin but once inside you can see something truly lovely. Our guide gave us a little history that made me want to learn more about this Kasbah.

This is where you really understand the 'south' of the country, the nomads, their culture and how they lived. Only to be visited with a guide as there is no educational panes.

While the kasbah is pretty cool from the outside, on the inside, it's an exercise in one whitewashed room after the other. I would take pictures of the mud construction from the outside and pass on the entrance fee, though perhaps having a guide would make it more interesting.

This is a real Kasbah and interesting to see just because it is the real deal. You do have to climb and watch your head but other than walls and architecture, there isn’t much more to see, you don’t need a guide and there are local artists making art for purchase throughout the Kasbah. There is a charge and you do get pressed to hire a guide but we declined.
