Underrated gem of a town Jul 25, 2011
A town that's rarely visited in its own right, most people only come here either as a stop on their way to the Sahara or to visit nearby Ait Bennhadou Casbah.

However, that is quite a shame in my opinion. Ouarzazate is an extremely picturesque and clean little town, and the hassle here is minimal in contrast to the over-commercialised tackiness of Marrakech. The town is dominated by a preserved adobe Casbah which is open to the public, similar to the famous one at Ait Bennhadou. Every building in the adjacent new town is built in traditional adobe Casabh style, even the modern Ibis hotel which has a very authentic-looking adobe facade. The town is colourful, the streets are wide and clean and there's an air of prosperity to the place. One a clear winter's day, the snow capped High Atlas give it an extremely picturesque backdrop. It's a very pleasant place just to stroll around, and you'll face none of the hassle of Marrakech. Highly recommended.
