On our way to the Sahara desert we stopped off at Morocco’s well known High Atlas Mountain Hollywood territory, the Red Citadel of Morocco, Citadel of Ait Benhaddou in the town of Ouarzazate.
Some of the many films made on this North African set include:
- Game of Thrones
- Jesus of Nazareth
- Lawrence of Arabia and
- Sodom and Gomorrah
- The Mummy
- Time Bandits
The Hills Have Eyes was also filmed in the Moroccan Atlas Mountains – a true story apparently!!!
Citadel of Ait Benhaddou is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Also in the region….
