The Ouarzazate area is a noted film-making location, with Morocco’s biggest studios inviting many international companies to work here. Films such as Lawrence of Arabia (1962), The Living Daylights (1987), The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), The Mummy (1999), Gladiator (2000), Kingdom of Heaven (2005), Kundun (1997), Legionnaire (1998), Hanna (2011), and Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (2011) were shot here, as was part of the TV series Game of Thrones
Read that Brad and Angelina have shot movies here, along with a host of other celebs.
One thought on “Ourazazate Revisited”
Hi Byron, we are traveling the same country at the same time on different paths as we just left Quarzarzate yesterday after spending two days wandering around to see the sand dunes and Ait Ben Hadous which was amazing. We rented a car and drove ourselves. We are now in Essaouira. Love the posts. Just read the post of Chefchaouen and had to laugh. You are having a much different experience from what we are. Take care
