Centre of the south

Ouarzazate, Morocco

Ouarzazate is by all standards a different city from most Moroccan cities of its size: about 40,000 inhabitants.
Its focal point is the long and wide street Avenue Muhammed V which starts before the city starts, and continue along the modern buildings, the kasbah of Tifoultoutte, and ends after Ouarzazate ends.
Ouarzazate is designed for heavy tourism, and is well established with numerous hotels of high standard, but relatively few restaurants. There is a strange and empty feeling to Ouarzazate, except in the centre where a typical Moroccan market dominates.
