is incredibly beautiful, in a deep groove, the village appears like a fortified city in ruins, with gigantic caves.

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 ksar 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 name

family of their owner.

Ksar Guermassa
