If you are staying in Marrakech, Morocco, it is worth taking a day trip from Marrakech to Ait Benhaddou to visit the ancient Kasbahs of this red earth village. It was once on a caravan route between the Sahara desert and Marrakech and this scene seems straight out of a desert movie. In fact, Ait Benhaddou hosted the epic movie Gladiator, the hit series Game of Thrones and many other famous movies. Arriving from Marrakech, Ait Benhaddou rises like a mirage in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Its old buildings keep memories of this once bustling trading post; a welcome sight for nomadic travelers crossing the Sahara desert.
