Ksar Ghilane, Tataouine

#32 of 78 in Historic Sites in Tunisia
Historic Site · Landmark
Witness the life of the local nomads at Ksar Ghilane, an oasis in the middle of the desert. Despite its location, the area thrives with plant life thanks to its hot spring, and locals make their living from date palms, goats, sheep, and camels. If you can tolerate the heat, try a dip in the spring. Alternatively, explore the number of cafes and shops, and grab a drink or a bite to eat. You can also visit the ancient Roman fort nearby, at the edge of the desert. Put Ksar Ghilane and other Tataouine attractions into our Tataouine route maker app, and watch your holiday take shape.
