Morocco: Ait Benhaddou, Agdz and Gorges du Todra

Aït Benhaddou is a 'fortified city' along the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech in present-day Morocco. Aït Benhaddou has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987 and several films have been shot there. Agdz which means "resting place" is located on the old caravan route linking Marrakech to Timbuktu. The lively market is held weekly on Thursdays. Gorges du Todra. The final 600 m of the Todra gorge are the most spectacular as the canyon narrows to a flat stony track as little as 10m wide in places, with sheer and smooth rock walls up to 160 m high on each side.
