Medenine.
There are ksour and semi-cylindrical storehouses of granaries called Ghorfas.

The first of them were built around the 17th century.

 

Tataouine.
Despite a dynamic Saharan tourism, the city retains its identity and its traditional architecture.

Its bi-weekly market Monday and Thursday is one of the most picturesque in Tunisia.


Chenini
Beautiful and most visited site located 18 km west of Tataouine, perched on a ridge. You will discover the troglodyte dwellings, built in the rock. A beautiful 13th century mosque rising between two peaks

is also accessible.

 

Ksar Ghilane.
The most southern of the Tunisian oases and one of the doors of the desert of the Tunisian Sahara, the oasis is fed

by a source of hot water in which one can bathe and which would have thermal virtues.

It serves as a refuge for fifty nomadic families living from the exploitation of the date palm,

goat and sheep farming.

 

Tamezret is famous for its woolen weaving, especially the traditional bakhnoug woven on vertical looms, then colored and embroidered. The bakhnoug is a long berber shawl in dark wool

decorated with lighter patterns.

An Amazigh museum is located in the village: the museum of Monji Bouras presents the Berber traditions and the history of Tamezret.

 

Matmata is the name of a Berber tribe who is herself a descendant of the Temzit. Hung on a mountainside,

this village is renowned for its remarkable troglodyte dwellings which make it one of the top places of Tunisian tourism.
