The walls of Tiznit were his work.

All these doors are of Alawite tradition and very strongly reminiscent of the city of Essaouira. The materials used for the curtain are rammed earth and rubble. For the openings of the doors, the workers resorted to cut stone.
Tiznit is the place of manufacture of the most beautiful jewels of the South, even of Morocco. There are daggers, pendants that attach to the chest or the forehead of women, all decorated with semi-precious stones and enamels.
