It’s not a mirage—there is indeed a medieval castle and a Buddhist temple in the middle of the desert in Ouarzazate, Morocco. These structures are among the massive sets at Atlas Studios. TV shows like “Game of Thrones” and “Prison Break” and films such as “Gladiator” and the live-action “Aladdin” have shot some of their most epic scenes on this property. If you’re up for an excursion, tourists are invited to walk among the sets when they aren’t in use.
