Photographer's Note

This photograph is part of the Kasbah at Ait Benhaddou.
There are less than 10 families now living there and since it becam a UNESCO world heritage site some of the buildings have undergone restoration to the upper sections.
Ait Benhaddou and its environs have featured in a number of films including Gladiator. It is situated approx 30km's north of Ouarzazate. You can explore without a guide although no doubt there will be a number of offers. Care should be taken inside some of the buildings as it can be quite dark and the earth steps can be quite hard on the legs esp if you are carrying heavy equipment. The photograph was taken towards the end of the day.
