Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou

Ait-Ben-Haddou is an extraordinary ensemble of buildings offering a complete panorama of pre-Saharan construction techniques ramming mass worked into panel brick and bull header, ordinary moulded earth, clay brick, etc. as well as a striking miniature of the architectural typology of southern Morocco. An astonishing loft-fortress overlooks the mountain against which the ksar is located.
