Aït Benhaddou Overview

Most of the town's inhabitants now live in a more modern village at the other side of the river; however, eight families still live within the ksar. The town itself is the main attraction, with mud buildings climbing up the side of the hill. The Granary at the top of the hill is impressive and well worth the effort to get up there.

The Mausoleum of Ben-Haddou is at the base of the hill on the opposite side to the town. Ait ben haddou Travel, Ait ben haddou,
