Tamerza is the largest mountain oasis in Tunisia located north of the salt lakes, is one off the most densely cultivated of the Jerid oases. It has a canyon and an abandoned old town.
The old village is a cluster of ruins that matches perfectly with the bare mountains around. At the bottom of the ruins, a very dry river adds to the overall picture. The only building that is still of use in Tamerza is the small mosque. Its white dome rises among destroyed walls.
