Travel Tips for Tozeur

Stairs from the Belvédère in the seventies

by JLBG

As the Belvédère is made of dry clay, it is easy to carve stairs to allow an easier access on top. In 2002, we have not been to the Belvédère as a sand wind had begun to blow. Though it was not strong, it was enough to make the landscape look blurry and it would not have been of any interest to look for a nice view.

Vines climbing the palm-trees

by JLBG

In the palm-grove, there are 3 levels of growth. At ground level, there are vegetable crops (carrots, salads, mint for tea, forage for the cattle, wheat, etc…). Mid heights level is for fruits, banana-trees (actually not a tree !), fig-trees, pomogranate trees. And top level is palm-trees. Vines climb along the palm-trees and give delicious grapes.

Traffic signs in the desert

by croisbeauty

"Attention camels crossing", when you see such a traffic sign it is for sure that you've find yourself in the middle of the desert. The sign is located in the outskirts of the town of Touzer, in front of the huge parking place from where we started our exploring of the desert by the jeep. Though, we haven't seen any camel on the road to Chebika. Since it was noon and over 50 C degrees, they might be hidden in the nearby huge date-palms wood.

Tozeur brickyard

by brazwhazz

After you have seen a few of Tozeur's buildings, it is likely you will want to know more about the bricks that are used to build them. For an interesting look into Tozeur's brick heritage, go to the Belvedere Rocks, where you will find locals able to direct you to the brickyard some 5-10 minutes further away on foot.

We were fortunate to meet a local man named Chebbi, who was nice enough to take us to the brickyard and have a local artisan show us how the bricks are made. We were also shown some handmade pieces of pottery, which are made from the same white and red clay as the bricks, but in different proportions. As a token of gratitude, we bought a hand-made earthen teapot, which made a nice souvenir.

At the brickyard, we also learned that the local government has decreed that at least 30% of the exterior of all new buildings in Tozeur must be made using these bricks. It is a great way to preserve this unique heritage and ensure the livelihood of the brickmakers.

Zoo - the banana flower

by croisbeauty

For the first time in my life I saw the banana tree growing out in the nature. It belongs, I suppose, to a palm tree spicies. The banana tree has very beautiful and a bit unusual flower. We never stop learning, that is why I adore travellings.
