Point C Visit Ait Ben Haddou & Return to Marrakech

Aït Benhaddou has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987 and several major films have been shot there, including Gladiator and The Mummya... It is situated on a hill along the Ounila river and is known for its kasbahs and was one of the most important fortress strongholds on the old Salt Road caravan routes, where traders brought slaves, gold, ivory and salt from sub-Saharan Africa to Marrakech and beyond. 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. Once in Ait benhaddou, you have the choice to have lunch or visit the village first with a local guide. Around 3 pm we will drive back to Marrakech.
