The ksar of Ait-Benhaddou, a Unesco World Heritage Site, rises in tiers on the left bank of the asif Mellah, on a hillside dominated by the ruins of former fortifications. It is an extraordinary hodgepodge of reddish-brown adobe constructions. The Atlas snow sparkling in the distance for much of the year highlights the strange quality of the site, tempered only by the greenery of the riverside.
