Inside the houses
Douiret, Tunisia

Douiret, Tunisia

Some of the most impressive buildings of Douiret are since long abandoned. They can rise 3 to 4 storeys high. Styles are simple but workmanship are of fine quality.
Should you be so lucky, one of the remaining families may allow you to look into their home. This is a gesture that should be tipped. Around the village, there are also some oil presses, of which 3 are still in use. Also, look out for bakeries, which no longer are in use.
