Tunisia Off The Beaten Path: 144 reviews and 270 photos
Haddej is until now the only place that I recommend you not to go. Lonely Planet describes it as a place where you can find original troglodyte houses, without all that Matmata’s touristy accessories. . . Haddej was also used to shot some scenes of the Monty Pyton’s Life of Brian and “the marriage cave” should worth a visit as well. But as soon as you arrive there some angry kids will follow you everywhere asking for money . . . it was very disgusting!!! So our visit to Haddej lasted less than 10 minutes, the time to take 2-3 pictures, I could not stand all those angry kids!!. What a pity . . . because the landscape, with all those white domes (zawiyyas for some saints) was beautiful!. Oh, I have read that most of the families owning a troglodyte dwelling here, charge you an entrance fee to visit it . . . mah!
