Rubbing elbows with Gladiators, Dragons and Bedouin

Ait Benhaddou

This kasbah has been playing host since the 11th century. And you might be wondering why I have invited (with the help of Dall-e ) gladiators, Bedouin and dragons to a battle glorious.

Well, those familiar with western movie spectacles know this local is often sought after by Hollywood directors due to its unique architecture and setting. Films since the golden age have taken advantage of the amazing surroundings. Some might recognize it’s walls and streets from Lawrence of Arabia, The Gladiator and more recently as the city of Yankai in Game of Thrones.

We get to tour this kasbah before relaxing with tea and home made bread in Tawesna.
