Going down the troglodytes
Matmata, Tunisia

Matmata, Tunisia

Each house forms a circular crater that is really the courtyard of a family. You can actually stand on the edge and look down on them – and that is what most tourists do today.
Usually each crater is two stories deep, complete with doors, staircases and openings to nearby caves. But there are no windows.
