Here we will stop to admire the spectacular views, before we descend to Ait Ben Haddou, one of the geological wonders of this planet, which has lasted for millenniums. It looks as if it were a separate universe. We will visit a great fortress that has served as the setting for famous films like "Lawrence of Arabia", "Gladiator" and "The Jewel of the Nile." It consists of several building structures; it is thought that ocher was mixed with clay over what was once dry land on which a great river flowed. Today it is fertile ground.
