The Seven Cities of The M'zab

Ghardaia is made up of 7 cities built between the 11th and 17th centuries by the M'zab people and is regarded as the 2nd best tourist destination in Algeria for its culture and the style of the architecture.
Unfortunately I only had one day there in between Tamanrasset and Timimoun, so didn't get the opportunity to explore all it has to offer.
The 7 Cities are:
Tajnint - The oldest and called Al Atfe in Arabic
At izguen - called Beni Izghen in Arabic
