An exceptional illustration of the local brickwork, Le Vieux Quartier de Ouled el Hadef (Medina) fascinates visitors with its yellow and brown facades adorned with elaborate geometric designs. The old quarter dates back to the 14th century. Walk through the narrow alleyways between virtually windowless walls and breathe in a traditional and almost medieval atmosphere. The area features geometrical motifs created by laying small handmade bricks; designs resemble henna tattoos or patterns on fabric. Find a local guide to learn about the symbolic meanings of the brickwork. If you are interested in the Berber way of life, look for a small museum set in a traditional house at the heart of the medina.
