Kasbah Taourirt, Ouarzazate

Kasbah of Taourirt in Ouarzazate in Morocco is one of the most beautiful architectural constructions of the city. This Kasbah was founded in the 17th century before being rebuilt by the Glaoui tribe in 1882, the Lords of the Atlas.

This Berber construction impresses visitors with its enormous mass and the details of its picturesque ornamentation. It looks like a big sand castle in the desert. The Kasbah of Taourirt served as palace to the Pasha of Marrakech, Thami el Glaoui, who had rebelled against King Mohammed V when Morocco was under French protectorate.
Taourirt is the name of the village where the Kasbah was built. This village founded in the 12th century still has a medina that can be visited. Kasbah Taourirt form, unlike that of Ait-Benhaddou, a kind of fortified village with its streets and houses in the middle of the village itself.
If Ouarzazate is known for the Kasbah of Taourirt and the Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou, both listed as World Heritage Sites by Unesco, this city has been made famous for its desert cinema studios such as Atlas Studios. have found here the ideal landscapes for the filming of some films
