The village
Chenini, Tunisia

You enter Chenini going through brown valleys where little grows. Just when the mountain range is all around you, you stand beneath the mountain where the vibrant village of Chenini lies.
While walking up, the unity of mountain and man dissolves and each house becomes clear. The only thing that totally stands out is the white mosque, positioned on a saddle between two moderately elevated peeks.
Among the most popular buildings to visit are the bakery and the ancient oil press.
