Game of Thrones isn't the first serial or film production to choose Morocco for filming. In addition to great movies such as Kingdom of Heavn, Babel, Gladiator,... there is now a tendance for serial producers to film in Morocco. Nowdays, Prison Break new season is being filmed in Morocco. Ourzazate, a city in southern desert Morocco, is the capital of cinema. It has large studios (Atlas studitos) and natural vistas.
Game of thrones was filmed in the following locations:
- The valley of Ait Benhaddou (Pentos and Yunkar, the yellow city)
While Yunkar,represents a city where slaves are traded, Ait Benhaddou, a city of yore made of clay, might have been a slavery place as well but has for sure impressed the GOT producers.
