After a short transfer, our adventure begins in Ouarzazate, nicknamed the /’door to the desert because it used to be a crossing point for African traders on their way to Europe. It is now the site of the Atlas Film Studios, the setting for many Hollywood films, as well as Game of Thrones and BBCs Atlantis. It s also home to the impressive Kasbah Taourirt. Originally this kasbah was later owned by T/’hami El Glaoui who is better known as the Lord of the Atlas. The Krupps field gun that secured the Glaoui power is now displayed outside the kasbah.
