Ouarzazate – The Door of the Desert
Introduction To Ouarzazate
The name of this town means without confusion. It is the largest Saharan town in Morocco, a main crossroads of the South and an excellent base for local tours – see our Ourzazate Day Tours section.
It was created as a French Foreign Legion Garrison town and it is thanks to its location, not its looks that it holds the important tourism position that it does. Famous for its huge movie studios and well known for its carpets and pottery.
