Check the movies list below record in this place. Aït-ben-Haddou (in tifinagh: Ath Benhadu, in Arabic: آيت بن حدو) is a ksar of Morocco inscribed on the list of world heritage of UNESCO, in the province of Ouarzazate.
Aït-Ben-Haddou is located in the valley of Ounila, south of Telouet, stronghold of Glaoui, valley which was a traditional crossing point of the caravans connecting Marrakech south of the Sahara1.
This is a striking example of traditional southern Moroccan architecture, on the side of a hill at the top of which was a collective attic. The village is a group of earthen buildings surrounded by walls, the ksar, which is a type of traditional pre-Saharan habitat. The houses are grouped within its defensive walls reinforced by corner towers.
All around this douar a group of villages is gathering. All were attracted by a river running through a valley. The inhabitants of these douars are for the most part formerly nomadic Berbers who then chose sedentariness for various reasons.
The Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1987. Nicknamed "Mont-Saint-Michel des Chleuhs2" during the French protectorate, several films were shot among which:

Aït Benhaddou (Berber: Ath Benhadu, Arabic: آيت بن حدو) is a fortified city, or ksar, along the road between the Sahara and Marrakech in present-day Morocco. It is situated in Souss-Massa-Drâa on a hill along the Ounila River and is known for its kasbahs, although they take damage with each rainstorm. Most of the town's inhabitants live in a more modern village on the other side of the river; however, eight families still live within the ksar.
