It’s a city in between! Ouarzazate in Morocco is located in between the famous Game of Thrones desert scene of the Aït Ben Haddou red-earth city on the northwest and the rocky Todra Gorge on the northeast. It’s the home of the huge Telouet Kasbah, the 19th-century palace, which has been featured in several movies, and it sits high on the Atlas Mountains. Ouarzazate is basically a stopping-off point between the Sahara desert and the tourist hot-spot of Marrakech. However, there are some note-worthy tourist sites in the city such as the famous Aït Ben Haddou red-earth city, the Telouet Kasbah palace, Fint Oasis, etc. Spending one or two nights in this city will enrich your Moroccan holiday. That’s why we give you the top 10 Airbnb vacation rentals if you are planning to stop by at Ouarzazate for a few nights. Check them out below.
