Tamdaght Kasbah, Ounila Valley, Morocco
Tamdaght Kasbah, Ounila Valley (connecting Ait BenHaddou to Telouet Kasbah) Ouarzazate Province, Morocco Morocco, 2016-04-23.
Shortly after Ait ben Haddou lies Kasbah Tamdaght. Also owned by the Glaoui family, the kasbah has not had much renovation over the years and is very near a state of complete ruin. Some rooms – even sections of the kasbah are inaccessible, but the main essence of the building is still alive. Many find Tamdaght to be a far more authentic experience of a southern Moroccan kasbah than it’s famous neighbour and Ridley Scott fell so in love with it’s rustic setting that he decided to a large scene of Gladiator (2000) here.
