Matmata Things to Do: 32 reviews and 53 photos
In an actual troglodytic house, the human housing has been more carefully built, there is a door, the wall is painted, usually in white. In the center of the "well", what shows is not a well but the top of a cistern. When it rains, usually in Spring, the rain water is flowing on the soil is collected in an underground cistern where it keeps fresh year long. I have tasted it in August, it was amazingly cool ! Of course, all the collecting area is kept very clean so that the water will not be soiled.
