TIZNIT HISTORICAL WALLS

The Wall of Tiznit is the last work founded at the end of XIXème century in the era of the Alaouite Sultan Hassan I. This cultural heritage of 7.5 km in length and 8 meters in height was created with the aim of planting a military base to stabilize the hinterland and prevent the intrusion of Europeans from the Atlantic Ocean.

The opening of these doors is made of cut stone and strongly reminiscent of the architecture of the Alawite dynasty. The ramparts of Tiznit were classified as national patrimony in the 1930s; A heritage preserved and restored by adobe specialists.
