Aït Benhaddou Kasbah is the most well-known ksar from the Ounila Valley as it’s the very well maintained and most beautiful remaining village. Individuals in the nineteenth century began to settle in this oasis space to escape the Arab-Muslim occupation of northern Morocco but the village was built only five hundred years ago. The Kasbah is shielded by a giant fortification and has been a major transit point for its caravan between the Sahara desert and Marrakesh. The Ksar is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Kasbah (Fortified city) Taourirt was built with wood and earth. The buildings are surrounded by high walls and it’s a traditional pre-Saharan habitat. The Kasbah belongs to the village of the exact same name attached to Ouarzazate.
