Places to discover in Ourzazate
For me, Ourzazate is a city that has not been discovered the way it should be. If we think about it, this city has many features that could attract lots and lots of tourists. This city is important in Morocco’s history and I know Moroccans that live here are proud of that. If you like learning about history and cinema, this is the appropriate city for you. The main sources of this city is agriculture and tourism. So, if we talk about tourism, then we understand why this city should be visited for many people, especially people who really enjoy cinema. It has two film studios and many movies have been filmed here.
If we talk about a Morocco Tour in this city, there are many places that should be included. Besides places to discover, this city offers amazing experiences and tours tailored to people’s need. If you like adventure and high speed, then the Kart adventure is the one for you. A trip in a car like that is great and people always enjoy this. You do a tour around the placed in a yellow car, and you discover the city in high speed. Can you imagine looking at this beautiful city while feeling the adrenaline in a car? This is definitely an experience you should not loose. You will have a person that will guide your trip and will around in case you have a problem. Do not waste time and join this experience, you will not regret it!
Visiting Hollywood can be a little expensive, but this is your lucky day; did you know you can visit something like Hollywood in Morocco? You may not find a mountain with letters but you are going to find things even better. It is really curious to see the places in which many movies have been filmed in CLA Studios. Maybe it is not a big deal, but it is still curious. Here you will learn the magic of the movies, so you may find out that some things are not real –just like movies-. The landscape around CLA Studios is beautiful; stony dessert and snowy mountains decorate the zone. There are two big egypticians statues and everything looks like a Pharaoh’s house. I can say this is one of the best places of this city, and if you love movies you are definitely going to like this curious and fun place in Ourzazate.
Ourzazate also has a desert that you can visit in the Morocco Tour. It is recommended for everybody and it is also recommended to spend a night here. You can ride a camel and it is better if you walk around this place on your own. Maybe this is not like the Sahara Desert but it is still worth it. If you want to visit the desert, I recommend to visit this place.
Getting back to the cinema, there is another place you can visit if you really enjoy movies. Musée du Cinema is a decoration museum of cinema. This could be like an extra option if you want a quick visit or if you want to keep exploring the cinema world in Ourzazazte. Some people say it is isolated and there are not many things to see more than old equipment that have been used in some movies.
If you have not decided yet if you want to visit this city, you can go to other museums that are still interesting and are not too expensive, or you can take the special tours that offer some great activities for all kind of people.
