Hermitage of Charles de Foucauld information

Lonely Planet review

It's obligatory to visit the Hermitage of Charles de Foucauld, a monk who came to live in the Hoggar in early last century. He chose to build a simple stone hermitage on top of the Assekrem plateau and can only be reached on foot. A few monks from Foucauld's order live up at the hermitage and say mass every morning in the small simple chapel; guests are welcome to join in.
