Tiznit Things to Do
Bab Al-Madher and surrounds
This is one of the gates to enter the old fortified town of Tiznit.
Besides this door (bab means door) there is a karge muslim cemetery with a very important white "Marabou's" tomb.
From here you can easily get to Source bleu, a place dedicated to the town patroness Lalla Tiznit, which tells the story that she was a prostitue that turn into a saint or sacred person. the place is not very clean nowadays, but people said that after she died and became a martir here, water started to come out of the spot where she actually died.
