Commanding view

You have to climb right up to the top of the town, but from the walls you have an excellent view over the whole town. There is also a museum with some excellent mosaics

Yes this is a great place to shop but you must remember where you are, this is not Europe but North Africa. You will only get a true bargain if you are willing to haggle/barter the price down, which can take time and effort. You can walk around this area and in my opinion very safely - just ignore all...

I love the Kasbah or the Medina as we called it. I have visited alone on at least 8 occasions and survived with some fabulous authentic Berber clothing and sandals added to my extensive wardrobe purchased for an absolute song! On my first visit I did manage to be convinced that I had haggled myself a really good bargain only... More
