Douz 

Located 250 km from Zarzis, Douz, a famous oasis known forits palm grove but above all to be the Gateway to the Sahara.

In antiquity it was the most important oasis in the region.

Its inhabitants are essentially Mrazig who would be,Arab immigrants who arrived in Tunisia in the 13th century.

Recently, Douz was still an important stopover for

caravans during their journeys between the Algerian Sahara and Tunisia.

The Mrazigues, inhabitants of Douz, remain very attached to their Sahara.

Sand rules most of the streets in Douz.

In these dunes is there, their history and the memory of their ancestors.

History they relive  every year for 4 days

from Douz Sahara International Festival.

Douz is changing the city comes alive, folk dances, craft fair, poetry contest, entertainment on every street corner.

Once a week, the most important markets in the region take place, spices, clothing, flour. We come here from everywhere.

Set back, the animal market, hundreds of men, negotiate, sell, goats, sheep or camels.

Direction the great dune of Ofra, the white sands…

The desert stretches as far as the eye can see, in summer it is not less than 50°.

The best time to go there is between October and March, the weather is very nice but much less hot!
