Impressive large building made of a mixture of chalk and sand, There are stairwells leading into many rooms with low windows providing light and nice view over the rich Daraa valley. Some rooms have plaster work decoration featuring floral patterns. There are painters working in the Kasbah offering there work to the tourists. We did not manage to get to... More

We were fortunate that there was access to this kasbah, as we were told that it is often closed for use as a film location. There is a maze of stairwells which give access to both public and private areas. Such restoration as has been undertaken has been done sensitively. Well worth visiting if in the area.

Very nice place for a fast visit in Ouarzazate. You will not need a guide or pay to go. Its located in the central part of the city.

It's opposite the museum and has a ticket to enter ..not worth going if u short on time and need to visit ait behnnadit kasbah..coz that's far better . However n this has its merits too..and tells you their lifestyle with their structures of the kasbah intact .many shopping stores etc ..worth only if you have leisure time .

The part of the Kasbah open to the public is in excellent repair. I felt like Alice in Wonderland exploring it round corners and up and down stairs. We did not take a guide but just wandered through ourselves. The rooms which were decorated were done so more modestly than others we've seen and we found it quite charming. It... More

The exterior of the Kasbah evokes images and memories of many Hollywood movies and we were told that this Kasbah had been seen in quite a few. Our late afternoon photos showcased the golden colors. There are many narrow stairs to climb and low doorways to stoop under. The residents must have been very short. The views through the wrought... More

This is a well restored example of Berber Kasbah architecture which was once used as a royal palace. Exploration requires climbing a number of steep, narrow steps and occasionally walking in a crouched position to get under the low ceilings. Hiring a guide which can be done on-site is highly recommended to get the most from your visit

A small gate leads to a innercourt where an old in Germany made gun is pointed at you. Look up and admire the "pisé"-walls which seem te be sculptured. No colour is used on the outside. Small doors and stairs lead to all parts of the mansion. For photographers: beautiful sights through the wndows equiped with ironwork. A must-see.
