The Berber region of Tataouine shelters natural, patrimonial and human wealths, they are a mine of priceless treasures. Visiting this region is a wonderful journey
by the beauty of its landscapes, the generosity of its inhabitants
and the history of its ancient civilizations
Very beautiful and most visited site located 18 km west of Tataouine, perched on a ridge. you will discover the cave dwellings, built in the rock. The road to Chenini
is incredibly beautiful, in a deep groove, the village appears like a fortified city in ruins, with gigantic caves.
Departure from the village for 2 hours of walking through the hills
to reach the village Douiret
The Berbers built a ksar on the most impregnable site, they used it to store food, oil, barley, wheat, dried figs and dates, olives, for storage.
Four small ksour had been built, on the mountains which surround Douiret, at the four cardinal points, in advanced surveillance posts. Douiret is divided into two parts: The old village with
its cave dwellings dug in the hills, and the new village located on the hillside. The old village is made up of small dwellings, called ghiren (plural of ghar meaning cave),
which bear the surname of their owner.
In Guermassa, the population lived in caves dug in the tender layers which alternate with the hard rock banks, on two floors the dwellings sink into the mountain.
It will take a 4x4 to reach ksar Guermassa, this Berber village hanging on the hillside. Take the path that leads
Guermassa is a unique experience.
