Ouarzazate Kabash is literally translated into “door of the desert”. This city is the capital of the Ouarzazate Province in the southern part of central Morocco. Since 2004, its population has been estimated at around 56,000. This city is elevated 1,160 meters over sea level in the center of a barren plateau on the south of the Atlas Mountains. Towards the south of this town is a large desert.

The city is mostly inhabited by Berbers, who constricted most of the prominent fortresses, or Kasbahs, in the area. Ouarzazate Kabash is a very popular holiday destination for Morocco because it acts as a nodal point for excursions across the desert and the Draa Valley. The ksar, or fortified village of Ait Benhaddou lies nearby this city. Ait Benhaddou is full of rich history and culture, causing UNESCO to declare it a World Heritage Site.
