DOUGGA
Set in an olive grove, Dougga is likely the most interesting and best preserved Roman site in Tunisia. There is a lot to see including a theatre, a Capitoline monument, temple, public baths, and the Libyco-Punic Mausoleum. Dougga is usually visited in conjunction with Bulla Regia during a one day excursion from Tunis. A 30~45 minute stop on the way at the Andalousian village of Testour is highly advisable, especially on market day (Friday).

KSAR GHILANE SOUTH OF TUNISIA
These striking fortified granaries were used by the nomadic Berbers to store grain and other food while they moved from place to place.??? The few which still remain are fascinating to look around. Ksar Ghilane itself is located in an oasis and there is a wonderfully refreshing natural hot pool (30°C) to swim in. Ksar Ghilane is surrounded by some gorgeous and dramatic desert landscape and the large sand dunes stretch as far as the eye can see...........

NEFTA
This small oasis town west of Nefta has maintained a strong link to traditional desert life despite increased tourism. The raised (relief) brickwork, characteristic only of the buildings of this Tozeur and Nefta, is inspired by carpet and calligraphy patterns.


Nefta is the home of Sufism in Tunisia. Many important religious sites, including the tomb of Sidi Bou-Ali, are located in this area. Although only a small town, Nefta has 24 mosques as well as the tombs of many marabouts (pious Muslim holy men). This makes it the second most important religious center in Tunisia after Kairouan.


There is a fair amount of walking in Nefta to see the sights and you may wish to take alternative transport such as a camel or taxi. It is said that the best dates come from Nefta - make sure to taste a few (or more) on your way through!

The interior of a troglodyte house, Matmata
Located in the mountains of Djerba, Matmata is a troglodyte village named after a Berber tribe. The lunar-like landscape consists of craters dug into the ground and made into houses, some of which date back to the 4th century BC.
Advertisement
These troglodyte caves in Matmata are located five to ten metres deep below ground and consist of a courtyard, storage rooms and living accommodation. Access is through a sloping tunnel, or by a ladder which could be removed during dangerous times.

The Matmata landscape and troglodyte houses can look spookily familiar as they were featured in the first Star Wars movie. A few of these underground constructions are still inhabited and can be visited by arrangement with the owners, while one or two have been turned into hotels, making for an unusual night's stay.

Douz
Every Thursday, when the Douz Camel Market takes place, this oasis town becomes a buzzing trading centre for the buying and selling of the animals.
Advertisement
Although it has become something of a tourist attraction, the Douz Camel Market still retains a real appeal, attracting genuine Touareg tribesmen, for whom the camel is still a vital commodity.
