Lalla Zninia Spring

Lalla Zninia Spring Review

Facing the pisé (sun-dried mud) wall of the prison housed in the old Kasbah, continue to the left until you reach the Lalla Zninia Spring (also known as the Source Bleue) on your left, which honors the saint after whom Tiznit is named. Legend has it that this shepherd girl brought her flocks to this spot and smelled the then-undiscovered spring below; her sheep dug (if you can imagine sheep digging) until they found the water, and the town was born. To catch a glimpse of her tomb on afternoons when devotees visit, follow the prison wall and turn left on the first narrow neighborhood street; the tomb is behind a green-painted door on your left.
