Photographer's Note

Although the mountains surrounding Tataouine are known for their ancient Berber settlements, we were told by a local artist that this particular site was actually built and occupied by Bedouin tribesmen. The "ksar" is a fortified assemblage, spread around 2 large courtyards, of multi-storied, vaulted granery cellers caled "ghorfas". This one seems to be occupied, perhaps by one of the caretakers of the site.
