Ouarzazate Travel Information  The "Door to the Desert" as it is called, Ouarzazate is indeed just that. Literally, the name means without noise, evoking the silent sentinels of the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert. Once a small crossing point for African traders, the region attracted filmmakers in the 20th century, where scenes for films such as "Star Wars", "The Last Temptation of Christ" and "Lawrence of Arabia" were shot. Many excursions across the Draa Valley and the desert begin here, and the town and surrounding area feature prominent Berber kasbahs that seem to spring organically from the desert floor. This destination evokes an exotic atmosphere that will amaze even the most seasoned traveler.Additional Morocco travel information including vacation packages.
