These fields of date palms are just wonderful. This oasis is about 11km2 and it gets water from 200 springs which allows an intense agriculture here. Wandering around this wood of palms is very pleasant, the weather (in winter) is warm and the only ?noise? is the sound of some birds so if you are coming from a cold and busy European city that will seem to you another world. There are some nice spots to see like the Marabout of Sidi Aguili,(picture 3) which has no particular interest but the ?painting? is very beautiful. Here you will also find the Marabout of Sidi Bou Lifa,(picture 4) maybe one of the most beautiful Marabouts in Tunisia, which is the tomb of the saint. In front of the marabout there is a huge jujube tree which it is said that it was planted by the saint himself.
