Travel Tips for Ouarzazate

Take a trip to the oasis of Fint

by angiebabe

Despite all the visits ive made to Ouarzazate and the time ive spent and lived around the area id never heard of 'Fint' until just recently when i was in Ouarzazate to spend some time a bit more as a tourist but ran into some people i knew who recommended i go out to see 'lovely' Fint.

I was told its only 10km by piste road out to the 'lovely oasis with kasbah' and that it should take only about an hour and a half there and back. and thats what i found. Its 10km from the turn off from the bypass road that runs behind Ouarzazate from the south, eg Agdz, north to Marrakech. The road had some pockets of slow piste with biggish stones or rocks which then became smaller and the route was faster to drive on.
The terrain is fairly flatf though gradual incline with not much to see other than pleasant hills in the distance surrounding the route and a dam of water that had some stilted birds and cranes and flowers and colourful vegetation and also a herd of goats grazing nearby and a group of locals swimming.
Then suddenly appears the valley down into the oasis with rather impressive rock formations and down into a palmeraie with creek and pink oleanders and of course some locals asking how i am and inviting me to the village.
The creek looked a bit too deep for the car and it looked dirt based rather than stone based so that was it for me other than to get out and have a quick look around for some nice pics of the surrounds.
and then head back. The drive back facing the direction of Ouarzazate gave nice views of the city in the distance surrounded by its hills and mountains with some sight of the blue barrage water as well.
If id had more time i would have waded across the river and gone for a walk into the village to see the kasbah.

On the way to Ouarzazate (part V)

And then...you see your first Kasbah!

On the picture :
This kasba of Glaoui, in a very bad condition, is built in a splendid site. Originally, ground villages (ksours, sing.: ksar) was built by nomad families having decided to settle. The absence of maintenance, erosion due to the sand winds or the driving rains could make turn over these marvellous buildings to their ground of origin.

Ourzazate

by travolta159

"Center of the south"

Ouarzazate is by all standards a different city from most Moroccan cities of its size: about 40,000 inhabitants.
Its focal point is the long and wide street Avenue Muhammed V which starts before the city starts, and continue along the modern buildings, the kasbah of Tifoultoutte, and ends after Ouarzazate ends.
Ouarzazate is designed for heavy tourism, and is well established with numerous hotels of high standard, but relatively few restaurants. There is a strange and empty feeling to Ouarzazate, except in the centre where a typical Moroccan market dominates.

"the Kasbah"

Despite being slighty scorned by certain traveller's guide books, the kasbah of Ouarzazate stands out as an exquisite example of how to take care of one's heritage with style. The entrance is clearly a bit on the clean and proper side, as if it was prepared for a foreign filmtake – something that happens quite a lot actually. Among the better spots for making movies would be near the beautiful Palace of Glaoui on the highest point...But as soon as you enter the interior, it is packed by people that live here, enjoy it, and who only get help to keep up the standards through a governmental action every fourth year. The red-brown walls are continuously smouldering so that you get a feeling that this is the real thing.
Seeing the kasbah from the other side of the river is a great experience. Through a frame of the palm branches you see the structurers of the kasbah slightly bending and stretching to the sky. All in all it could remind you of Yemen, an impression that is helped by the white painting around windows on some of the houses.

Ait Benhaddou

by earthflyer

Ait Benhaddou
Not far from Quarzazate you will find a Ait Benhaddou, now becoming a popular place for tourist to visit. The village of Ait Benhaddou has one of the best-preserved kashbahs in the Atlas region and has been used as a backdrop in a few of Hollywood blockbusters movies such as Lawrence of Arabia, Jesus of Nazareth & Gladiator with Russell Crowe.

On the upper reaches of the Kasbah is a ruined fortified granery with great views of the surrounding area, a good place to watch the sunset.
