Less than 50 kilometers south of the mighty Atlas mountain range, a fortified city serves as a gem and ancient trading center for the Ounila Valley in northwestern Africa's MOROCCO. Featuring corner towers, this walled ksar is named Aït Ben Haddou (آيت بن حدّو), a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in Ouarzazate Province of the Souss-Massa-Drâa Region. The UNESCO webpage features dozens of photographs in an image gallery. The oldest buildings in Aït Ben Haddou were constructed in approximately the 17th century (1600s).
