Fodor's Expert Review Méchouar

Tiznit Plaza/Square/Piazza

The main square, the Méchouar, is the heart of town and was once a military parade ground. Nowadays it has become a car park with a clutch of cheap hotels and cafés around it. Down a side street off the main square (heading in the direction of the ramparts) you'll find a smaller square lined with orange trees, where locals buy from the mint, date, and dried-thyme vendors whose carts are parked between the rows of clothing and housewares. Off the square, you'll find the town's main souks.
