WHAT TO DO IN OUARZAZATE ?

Nicknamed the Hollywood of Morocco or Door of the Desert, Warzazat is an oasis of caramel color highlighted by the cloudless azure of the North African sky. Countless mud casbahs, mountains and arid plains, verdant valleys and oases, palm groves and red or ocher earth villages make this region's charm and give it considerable tourist appeal. The symbol of the city is the casbah of Taourirt, which belonged to Glaoui. Adjoining the medina, it was built around the middle of the 18th century.

Located at the confluence of the wadi Warzazat and wadi Dades which form the wadi Drâa downstream, the city is the nerve center of South Morocco, south of the High Atlas and at the entrance of the Sahara. It is also one of the most popular Moroccan sites for filmmakers around the world. In addition to landscapes, one of its cinematographic strengths is the quality of light, with a brilliant sun averaging 300 days a year.
