Atlas Studios Morocco: World’s Largest Film Studio! (photos)

April 18, 2012


Atlas Studios Morocco, Ouarzazate

Of my favorite things to do in Morocco, Ouarzazate attractions are among the top of my list. It is the picture-perfect place in the middle of the Sahara, away from civilization, with amazing kasbahs and places of interest. Best of all? It is home to Atlas Studios Morocco:

Also dubbed the Hollywood of il Maghreb, Atlas Studios Morocco is where blockbusters such as Lawrence of Arabia and other films like GladiatorBabel and Kingdom of Heaven where filmed (Wiki). In fact, Atlas Studios Morocco is one of the largest movie studios in the world. As if Ouarzazate’s surroundings weren’t enough!

Diversify your Moroccan itinerary!

Atlas Studios Morocco is a must-see Ouarzazate attraction and will sure spice up your Moroccan itinerary with something different. The vastness of the largest film studio on Earth can’t obviously be properly portrayed in pictures, so you’ll have to go visit and see for yourself! ;)
