Rissani

Photographs from the Souk of Rissani.

While waiting for the sun to get a little down before start the photo-shoot in Merzouga dunes, we drove to Rissani old market to get Medfouna for lunch.
Rissani is one of the oldest cities in Morocco, actually the  the founder of the Alaouite Dynasty of Morocco (or the grand grand father of the king) is burred near Rissani.  Rissani was, and still a major commercial point, where people come from around the region to do business, especially inside it's old market, Souk.
