"Old walls of Tiznit"
Tiznit was founded back in 1882 by sultan Moulay Hassan (Hassan I). This is a very important city in Morocco and has great military importance on the french liberation.
Its nice orange wall surrounds a very interesting town with nice places to visit and relax from the strong summer sun.
