Large town with tiny ksar
Beni Kheddache is one of the largest towns west of Medenine, and is climbing up the mountain side, overlooking a fertile valley.
There is quite little of interest in the modern town, and the ksar that made you come here is not very impressive either. It is placed on a small hill top, but this position is terribly dwarfed by the nearby high mountains.

Beni Kheddache, Tunisia

But if you can do without quantity, at least Beni Khaddache offers some fine views: The ghurfas that still are used, the adjacent mosque with its two minarets and the one-floor market buildings that start right after the mosque
