TIZNIT
Blue source

This is the focal point of any guided tour around Tiznit. It could have been great, but the water which once sprouted out of this point, is now almost all gone.

Blue source of Tiznit, Morocco

This source, also called spring of Lalla Tiznit, is named after the city's patroness. She was a prostitute, who later came to repent her sins, and become a holy woman, a marabouta. At the place where she settled, a spring appeared, providing for her and other people settling down here.
