Tizi Ouzou or Thizi Wezzu (Arabic : تيزي وزو, Kabyle: Tizi Wezzu) is a city in north central Algeria. It is among the largest cities in Algeria. It is the second most populous city in the Kabylie region after Bejaia.
Tizi Ouzou was founded in 1856, after the successful expedition of France against Kabyle tribes.
The name Tizi Ouzou is made up of two Kabyle words: Tizi meaning col, and Ouzou (from Azzu) meaning Genisteae. The full name of the locality therefore means "the col of the Genisteae".
