Sights

Ouarzazate is more of a staging post in most travel itineraries. If you're here for a day or two, it's worth hiring a taxi and taking a day trip to the nearby Fint Oasis or the Barrage El Mansour Eddahbi, a popular fishing and birding spot.

From November to March, be prepared for the icy winds that can come whipping down from the High Atlas.
