Travelling through Morocco – the incredible Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou

The second Kasbah that we visited out in the Sahara the other side of the Atlas Mountains to Marrakesh was the most picturesque Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou.

It was basically a fortress built on a hillside that seemed to be made of red tinged mud. It had a fabulous setting and I can see why it was used in many films.

Our first sight of it was awesome.

Walking up through the narrow passageways one did get a feel of the danger of those olden days. It seemed defence was always the first thought. Trade must have been a dangerous business.
