Houmt Souk - the market area

Djerba’s main town houses an amazing fortress (Boor El-Kebir), located down by the sea and built in the 15th century to protect Djerba from Spanish invasion. A tour in town is also recommended to get a glimpse of Tunisian life – from the fishing port to the lively markets, and the beautiful “funduqs” houses (some are hundred of years old). There is also a special small church and two notable mosques (Mosque of the Turks and Mosque of the Strangers).
