The village of Aït Ben Haddou is about ten kilometres from Taborahte, a town located on the road that links Ouarzazate to Marrakech. Situated in the Moroccan Atlas, this village perched on a hill serves as a setting in GOT for the town of Yunkai, besieged then liberated by Daenerys in season 3 (ep. 7, 8, 9, 10).
Beyond GOT. Two kilometres before the entrance to the village, a small promontory along the road will offer you a splendid view of the whole ksar, the Ouarzazate wadi and the market gardening along it. The Ksar, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987, has been the subject of numerous restoration works. It is built on the left bank of the asif (the valley), on the hillside. A participation of 10 DH for the preservation of the site will be requested at the entrance of the Ksar. Its exceptional location has made it the main location for films such as Lawrence of Arabia, Jesus of Nazareth, Gladiator. Allow a minimum of two hours to enjoy the site.
