  • Drive to Midoun and visit Fadhloun’s Mosque, a typical mosque with a special religious architectural style that evokes the Ibadites, the most widespread religious sect on Djerba island.
  • Drive to Mahboubine and visit a traditional Menzel, the typical habitat of local insulars, it stands in a fenced garden planted with olive and palm trees with a traditional architectural style.
  • The inhabitants of each Menzel live independently and are self-sufficient thanks to their agricultural and craft activities.
  • Drive to Meninx, an archaeological site located on the southeast coast of the island of Djerba.
  • It was originally a trading post founded by the Phoenicians in the 1st millennium BC.
  • The site reached its apex during Roman times when it became the chief town of the island. The ruins include an amphitheater, a basilica, and a forum.
  • Drive to Telebt, not far from Cedouikech, in the south Djerba island, where we will visit one of the most preserved underground ibadite mosques dating from the fourteenth century.
  • It is a place of worship built in sober and stripped architecture. We can reach it by a staircase to the room of prayer while the skylights offer minimalist lighting.
  • Drive to Guellela, Djerba’s main pottery center, where clay is extracted from underground quarries and edited into magnificent storage jars and amphoras in a true form of art.
  • Visit a traditional pottery workshop to discover this ancient and amazing craft activity.
  • Explore the museum of local arts and popular traditions of Guellela.

MORE FUN TO COME!

  • Drive to Erriadh, and visit the ancient Synagogue, the most prominent reminder of the island’s Jewish community, who have lived on the island since 586BC, and is still an important religious monument of pilgrimage for Jews from all over the world. (During the religious feast of the Jewish community, the visit to the synagogue will not be possible).
  • Wander tour in Erriadh village to discover Djerbahood, a street art museum created by many international artists where hundreds of murals were painted.

Excursion très intéressante pour découvrir en profondeur l’île de Djerba. Nous avons bien aimé la côte sauvage de Djerba et le déjeuner riche au marché aux poissons.
