Did you know one of the largest film studios in the world is in rural Morocco. Atlas Studios is in Ouarzazet. Scenes from Babel, Gladiator, Lawrence of Arabia, Game of Thrones and many other films have been shot in the area.
Parts of Gladiator were filmed at Ait Ben Haddou, a historic village along old caravan route. It is a Unesco site.
Wonderful! Did you get inside the studios then? When we were there it was closed, and I was very disappointed. Ait Ben Haddou we visited though. Impressive.
We didn’t visit the studio. I’m not sure if it was open but it wasn’t on our itinerary.
Ah, I see.
