Aït Benhaddou

Aït Benhaddou (Berber: Ath Benhadu, Arabic: آيت بن حدّو‎) is a 'fortified city', or ksar, along the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech in present-day Morocco. It is situated in Souss-Massa-Draâ on a hill along the Ouarzazate River and has some beautiful examples of kasbahs, which unfortunately sustain damages during each rainstorm. Most of the town's inhabitants now live in a more modern village at the other side of the river; however, ten families still live within the ksar.

Aït Benhaddou has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987 (33 years ago) and several movies have been shot there, including;
Lawrence of Arabia (1962, 58 years ago)
The Man Who Would Be King (film) (1975, 45 years ago)
Jesus of Nazareth (1977, 43 years ago)
Time Bandits (1981, 39 years ago)
The Jewel of the Nile (1985, 35 years ago)
The Living Daylights (1987, 33 years ago)
The Last Temptation of Christ (1988, 32 years ago)
The Sheltering Sky (1990, 30 years ago)
Kundun (1997, 23 years ago)
The Mummy (1999, 21 years ago)
Gladiator (2000, 20 years ago)
Alexander (2004, 16 years ago)
