Ait Benhaddou, Morocco

Ait Benhaddou is a famous kasbah town that has been featured in dozens of films, including Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, Jewel of the Nile and Lawrence of Arabia.  A beautiful valley and well preserved kasbah.  And a very entertaining guest house host, "Action!"  He has appeared as an extra in many films.

A land of beautful contrasts.
Blue skies, purple mountians, sandy mud homes and green valleys.
