A veritable oasis

Large arrow left

The ancient walled city of Tamerza, at the edge of a beautiful oasis, was abandoned in 1969 following 22 days of (unbelievable!) torrential downpour.

A new, modern Tamerza was built to take its place, making use of the oasis in the middle of a canyon. The area boasts a few pretty waterfalls, but the panorama of Old Tamerza remains one of the most beautiful photo ops in Tunisia.

Stop at Tamerza, as well as two other picturesque oases (Chebika and Midès) on your way to Tozeur, the largest city in the region and a veritable oasis for travelers looking for some creature comforts.
