UNESCO - Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou, Morocco



I will do Unesco site in the order I laid my eyes on them :) From Marrakech I took a 3-day organised trip to the desert, and on the way we stopped by Ait-Ben-Haddou, a ksar (fortified city) along the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech. Ten families still live within the ksar! Many movies have been filmed there, among them Jesus Of Nazareth (1977), Gladiator (2000) and Kingdom Of Heaven (2005). And its kinda cool when you watch a movie (as I did with The Jewel of the Nile) and yell 'I've been there..!' looking all smug and silly heh.
