So I wasn't disappointed when I saw how ostentatious Ait Benhaddou was as I was aware that Hollywood had 'touched it up'. How much though? So the classic image:
clearly all looks as though it's been made by Hollywood, but then inside, like the following images:
these appear much more derelict looking and therefore I was unsure how much of this was Hollywood restoration that has since been neglected or how much was how Ait Benhaddou was before the film studios messed with it. I also deduced that sure there must have been some features of Ait Benhaddou that attracted Hollywood to the site in the first place - otherwise, they could just create a citadel much closer to Ouarzazate...or indeed anywhere.
What do people know/think about this?
