Aït Benhaddou, Morocco

Aït Benhaddou is a 'fortified city', or ksar, along the former caraavan route between the Sahara and Marrajech in present-day Morocco. It is situated on a hill along the Ounila River and is known for its kasbahs, although they take damage with each rainstorm. Most of the town's inhabitants now live in a more modern village at the other side of the river; however, ten families still live within the ksar. Aït Benhaddou has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987 and several films have been show there (including Sodom and Gommorah, Jesus of Nazareth, The Jewel of the Nile, The Mummy, Gladiator, Alexander, Prince of Persia etc.)
