Ait Ben Haddou, in the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains, is one of many old Berber fortified towns or kasrs in the south of our mystery country, a good example of the earthen architecture of the region. The large houses within the kasr are known in Arabic as kasbahs and small houses are ksour. You might recognize Ait Ben Haddou from these films (among many others): Gladiator, The Mummy, Kingdom of Heaven, Lawrence of Arabia, Alexander, Prince of Persia. Game of Thrones too!
