Village of Bled el-Haddar
Tozeur, Tunisia

Tozeur, Tunisia

The village of Bled el-Haddar is part of the best trip through the oasis, although getting to it simply takes too little time to create the effect of a separate village. From the main road of Tozeur, it is only 500 metres. But it is historically set apart from Tozeur, with its own identity.
It has one attraction, the mosque, where the minaret is built on Roman foundations (second photo). This among the very few remains of the Roman town Tusuros.
The mosque is sometimes open, I was among the unfortunate. Inside you should be able to admire a stone mihrab built by craftsmen from Balearic Islands.
