the world's most spectacular roads

 

Located in Morocco in the Errachidia Providence, Gara Medouar is an erosion cirque located near Erfoud nicknamed the “Portuguese Prison”.

The road to this rock formation is gravel and sand. It’s 3.15km leading off the N12 road. This is a maintained road where a high clearance 2WD vehicle is able to travel safely at low speeds on long dry straight-of-ways, without losing control due to wash boarding, ruts, or dips. This erosion cirque, where one can find etrilobites and anmmonites, stands tall at an impressive 858m elevation and was historically used to hold African slaves being sold to Portugal hence its nickname.

 

This track can get very muddy and slippery after rain making it challenging to get through. During and after a storm the road may be impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle. The place is really amazing, and because of that, several films were produced here: Bond’s Spectre (2015), The Mummy (1999), The Mummy Returns (2000), Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010), The Secret of the Sahara (1998).
