The ksar is a fortified settlement of Berber origin, with many kasbahs inside. The secret to Ait Ben Haddou’s significance is that it was a vital stop on the path of traders passing between Marrakech and the Desert. Caravans delivered gold, silver, and spices over the trans-Saharan trade routes that connected what is now Morocco, Mali, Ghana, Niger, and Sudan for a thousand years.
Another point to be mentioned is that the Kasr has served as the backdrop for many Hollywood films. Ait Ben Haddou Ksar is now a part of cinema history, serving as both a background and a character in several popular Hollywood films.
