The abandondoned old town of Tamerza
Tamerza is the largest mountain oasis in Tunisia. It was called Ad Turres by the Romans. It has a pleasant canyon and has an abandoned old town. The town was abandoned after the river flooded for 22 days in 1969. It is located north of the salt lakes and receives fresh water from the nearby hills. It is in the hillcountry near the border with Algeria, and is 6km from Mides. (wikipedia.org)
