Aït Benhaddou is an UNESCO World Heritage 30km from Ouarzazate. It is a traditional city on the edge of the High Atlas Mountains. It is one of my favourite places in Morocco, we actually didn’t know about this place until we arrived. Many Hollywood films were filmed here including Gladiator, The Mummy, Prince of Persia, Game of Thrones, etc just to name a few. It felt like a movie set than an actual World Heritage Site!
Ever since I came back from Morocco, I have always wanted to show people what to eat in Marrakech. Discovering what to eat there was the highlight of our trip, since both York and I love to eat! Djeemma El-Fna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Marrakech is one of the busiest squares in Africa, filled with exotic food! York and I came here specifically to try the lamb head, snails and other weird things you can’t find else where in the world!
Essaouira is one of our highlights in Morocco. York and I both love seafood and Essaouira has plenty of them. Essaouira is a small coastal town that became a UNESCO World Heritage listed city in 2001 due to its significance in history and culture. Spain, France, Netherland and England all wanted to take over this place. It is a popular destination for Morrocans to have their honeymoon, however we did not find romance here, we found what we love the most- abundant of fresh, cheap seafood!
