Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah located in the foothills of the southern slopes of the High Atlas in the province of Ouarzazate, the site of Ait-Ben-Haddou is the most famous ksar of the valley of Ounila. The Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou is a striking example of southern Moroccan architecture. Ksar is a mainly collective group of housing. Inside the defensive walls reinforced by corner towers and pierced by a chicane door, the houses gather – some modest, others resembling small urban castles with their tall towers and their upper parts adorned with clay brick patterns – but community areas. It is an extraordinary set of buildings offering a complete panorama of construction techniques in pre-Saharan land. The oldest buildings do not seem to be prior to the 17th century, although their structure and technique spread very early in the valleys of southern Morocco.

Rabat City ( The Capital of Morocco )
Rabat is a coastal city about 50 miles north of Casablanca.

Elements of those fortifications survive today in the city’s atmospheric kasbah. Other city highlights include the Hassan Tower, a beautiful sandstone minaret surrounded by half-finished pillars, and walls (the remains of an ambitious mosque project that suddenly stalled in the 12th century).
