Habitat troglodytique et le monde des ksour du Sud tunisien
Habitat troglodytique et le monde des ksour du Sud tunisien is part of the Tentative list of Tunisia in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
The Cave dwellings and the world of the ksour of southern Tunisia represent vernacular building types in the pre-Saharan zone. The ksour are collective granaries, to store provisions and food reserves in sufficient quantity to be able to face long periods of drought. They were also meeting places for the semi-nomadic Amazigh people.
