A favorite spot for Hollywood filmmakers!

Perched on the slopes of a small hill at the bottom of the flowing river and surrounded by thick walls that protect the interior, the old Moroccan city won the hearts of many Hollywood directors and actors.

It is thought that the city Ait Ben Hadow in Morocco was founded in the year 757, and its founder Ben Hadow was buried in the tomb behind this spectacular city. Veritably, the city is situated at the intersection of the Saharan exchange course, where old brokers moving flavors, slaves and gold to Timbuktu city in Western Sahara.

Most residents of this city have moved into modern homes but remain several families who defy time and still live in a thousand years old houses of clay. The city is located on the slopes of a small hill at the bottom of river flows.

All houses and buildings inside are built of mud bricks while the facade is made of a mixture of mud and straw. The city is surrounded by thick defensive walls that protect the interior. The edges of the wall has towers that give a dose of dramatic landscape.

Despite the history, there is another interesting fact about this ancient city, and it was his solid relationship with Hollywood. David Lynn recognized this and chose the city as the perfect place for the film “Lawrence of Arabia” of 1962.

Besides the perfect location, Lin had another purpose and that is to save the city from destruction. Namely, the eyes of the city fits perfectly into the vision of his film, he forced the authorities to put money in the reconstruction of this beautiful city.

From that moment until today last continuous construction works, so the front half of the city is in excellent condition, but there are buildings that need attention.

With that movie Lin introduced this magical place to the world, but inspired other filmmakers to choose it as a location for their films.
