With more film credits than most Oscar winners, stretching back as far as Lawrence Of Arabia in 1962, and right up to the present day with Son Of God and Game Of Thrones, Ait Ben Haddou is one of the most iconic destinations in Morocco. The gorgeous red-mud pisé walls of this ksar (fortified village) and kasbah (fort) seem to rise organically out of the hillside, leading down to a palm-fringed river bed. Thanks to a UNESCO grant, the ksar is now inhabited again, meaning that the endless cycle of repairing the walls after each rainy season has been taken up again. Ait Ben Haddou looks as wonderful as ever and wandering through the narrow streets is genuinely like walking back in time.
