There are over seven hundred historical monuments from magnificent mosques and noble houses to delightful palaces and fountains.
As you travel towards the town of Matmata in south Tunisia you can soak up the magnificent scenery, driving one of the three roads into the town, you only notice the town once you are actually upon it.

Don’t be fooled, the fact that this town is almost invisible if you aren’t sure what you are looking for does not mean it’s not a major tourist attraction rich in history, culture and with celebrity status.
