Houses
Zriba Qadima, Tunisia


Zriba Qadima, Tunisia


All houses of Zriba use the tube roof, which is common in the Dorsale Mountains, and which has similarities with the ghurfas of the south.
On the western side of the village a few houses still stand intact and are inhabited. The photo above shows the courtyard of the best maintained one.
The second photo shows the only house in use in the village proper. The lowest photo is from the eastern side of the village, the area with the fantastic views towards the Mediterranean Sea, the area where nobody wants to live.
