The Berbers are an African tribe of Tunisians who live in dug-outs beneath the ground.

The unusual nature of such habitation encouraged George Lucas, the American Filmmaker to use this area for one of his Star Wars films.

We decided to take this excursion and planned to arrive in time for a late lunch. Unfortunately, our lengthy coach trip involved waiting by the roadside several times for replacement coaches. In fact, a total of 5 breakdowns on the first day resulted in arriving some 4 or 5 hours later than anticipated, resulting in a late evening meal.

Fortunately, as you can see there was still sufficient sunlight to take some photographs.

I've visited the village last march. You have to reach the top of the small mountain, you can do this by car or by walking. There are very beautiful typical houses that were restored by their owner according to recommendations of National heritage Institute. There is a cute small museum, and a nice café.

We came here as part of a Thomson excursion. Takrouna is a Berber village built on rock located on a hillside.

It is still inhabited although some homes on the lower part of the hill have been abandoned. It was an interesting place to look around and there are some fantastic views of the surrounding areas. Make sure you bring your camera!

We stopped at the café, which sells soft drinks, not sure about food, but we had a cup of complimentary hot mint tea each. It was very nice and refreshing. There was a museum next door but we did not have time to visit (and there are also toilet facilities).

It was a hot day and I tended to stand in the shade when our tour guide was telling us information, make sure you bring a hat if you are susceptible to the heat. I would also suggest suitable shoes as there are steps up to the village as well as uneven paths. I was wearing flip flops and was being very careful where I stood.

I would have liked another half hour or so longer to have had a look round the museum and take in the views. The village residents were friendly and did not harass to buy anything.

A long drive from Tunis, about 115 km, but it is all worth it. Is not much to see, but is not the in the volume it is in the content. A very different place that you get to see in the world. It is educational, a place to tell a story.
There is a nice restaurant in the village, when I went I was the only tourist, I had tea and chatted with the lady tendering the place, a very nice local. I encourage you to go. If you want to see Tunisia you have to also see this place, this is an important part of it, not only for the Star Wars shooting. Two thumbs up!

If you want to step back in time then this is the perfect place. You can admire the landscape, you can explore people's homes, but in stone age style. The people were friendly, and they even served us with local food - pitta bread and honey and mint tea. I would recommend visiting this place.

The ruines reflect a history of a nation who found a way to live in very difficult conditions
Nice place to visit and get an idea about the way how to live in difficult conditions
It's not a luxurious ruines but its useful for the people who live there to preserve the cereals for the whole year

I've been to quite a few Berber villages in Tunisia and this one is particular because it's close to Tunis - actually close to Sousse, but still close to Tunis. There are only 12 families left in this village. One of the ladies makes the most delicious hand made bread. There are some lovely scenes from the top. Worth the trip, but make sure you go see others as well!

Picturesque - incredible history and equally stunning views. We also had lunch there while a local singer and drummer played - yes touristy but fun and mainly locals.
