"An ancient oasis in decline" Gabes by TheLongTone

Gabes Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 25 photos

I only spent twenty four hours or so in Gabes, passing through on my way to Matmata, but it seemed to be a pleasant place and had I not been on a fairly tight itinerary I could easily have spent two or three days there wandering through the town and palmeries.

    You are right, Gabs is now more a large city worth the visit than an oasis!
