Ouarzazate is situated about 210 miles (338 kilometers) south of Rabat, the national capital, and 80 miles (129 kilometers) southeast of Marrakech.
Some of the most iconic heritage sites in Ouarzazate are Kasbah Taouirt and the equally interesting Kasbah Tifoultoute. These are excellent sites at which to get a taste of local history. To learn more about the past, it is also fun to visit the other historic places in Ouarzazate.
Ouarzazate’s major sights sometimes overshadow its less visited, but equally fascinating spots such as the Atlas Studios.
