Underground House at Matmata

The unique feature of Matmata are its underground homes which are warm in winter and cool in the summer.
Among the most picturesque sites of the south are the towns of Tamerza, Chibika and Midès, which combine barren mountain vistas with winding, green, palm-filled riverbeds. Across the vast salt depression known as Chott El Jerid, lies Douz with its rolling sand dunes, working camels and desert culture of the tent and the focks.
