AIT BENHADDOU, from the 11th century, is an ighrem along the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech. Families still live in the ancient village, and it is a fine example of clay architecture. Films such as Lawrence of Arabia, Game of Thrones and Gladiator were filmed here.

The KASBAH AMRIDIL, situated in Skoura, was originally built in the 17th century, and is one of Morocco's most iconic living museums. Little has changed since its foundation over 300 years ago, and the family who built the kasbah, the Nassiri, is still the proprietor and are responsible for its upkeep and renovations. The Nassiri family live onsite and carries out their daily life among the ancient wells, the olive-oil press, the bread ovens, and the happy goats meandering in the courtyard.
