Aït Benhaddou is a fortified city, or palace, along the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech in present-day Morocco.

Once inside the Ksar you can only walk or climb. There are two main entrances into the Ksar. One can be reached by new bridge. To reach the second. 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.
