The funniest city- Ourzazate
The funniest city- Ourzazate
I have said that Morocco is a country for every kind of people; this is totally true. Since people who like adventures and hiking and people who like big and cosmopolitan cities, it seems that there is always a city for you. In my case, I like cities that make you learn something new and deal with movies or things like that. I got surprised when I found out that Morocco seems to have its own “Hollywood”, but instead of having that name, that city is Ourzazate.
It may be one of the famous cities in the best Morocco Tour you are doing, but there are many things about this city that we have not discussed yet. This is a comfortable town, maybe it is not the prettiest town in Morocco but it is small and comfortable. It offers all the services for tourists like supermarkets, renting cars, among others. The main avenue is called Mohamed V and it is really big, here you can buy things you like as souvenirs, handicrafts, turbans, carpets, plates among others.
The best thing I liked about this city is the fact that you can find the Atlas studios, which is one of the biggest studios in the cinema world. I thought this was amazing because I never thought I would find a studio in Morocco, but it seems that many famous movies were filmed here and Morocco is important in the cinema industry.
It also has a beautiful Kasba, which is one of the most beautiful places in Morocco. The interior is beautiful and you can see details about the walls and wood that are amazing, it looks like a little house but actually is more than that; you can get lost walking around this place and climbing stairs. There is a room that has a gallery that shelters the works of the artists and sculptors. If you like looking at these pictures, you will probably spend many time here. This is definitely one of the places you should visit and spend time.
There are some funny activities you can do while you are in this city. If you are deciding which Morocco Tour you should take, I highly recommend you doing the Safari Tour. I recommend you to hire a local guide and then you just have to enjoy visiting the places that are included in this tour.
If you want to experience another thing, you can visit the Oasis Fint. If you have not visited an Oasis before, this is your chance to do that, it is going to be an experience you will never forget. This oasis is real and it looks like in the movies. People here is kind and gentle. You can have lunch in a restaurant and it is not going to be too expensive. The landscape, rocks, river, animals and people here make this place an amazing adventure for those people who have not visited the Oasis Fint yet. The oasis and the zone is beautiful, you can find an accommodation right here and you can look at people doing the habitual things like washing the cloth in the river.
As you can see, Ourzazate is a gift that you need to open. This city has many things to offer to you and it is probably one of the best cities in Morocco. It may not be the best city in Morocco, but it is a great city that everybody should visit. So, if you are planning a Morocco trip, I highly recommend you to add “The Hollywood of Morocco” to your list.
