On the way to Matmata, the sleepy village of Tamezret deserves a short stop. Some tourist buses do it, but they only stay at the foot of the hill, where there is a tourist café and people can take nice pictures of the valley and buy some souvenirs. The real Tamezret is on the hill, walking in all those climbing streets until the white mosque on the top. There are some villages like Tamezret in the country but almost all of them are abandoned so Tamezret is interesting because it is still alive and more or less well kept.
