Welcome to Houmt Souk
White domes and palm trees dot Houmt Souk's skyline, there are a number of historic mosques built in the distinctive fortress style that the town is known for, and its excellent museum focuses on Djerba's traditional culture and is well worth a visit. So, while its name in Arabic is ordinary and strictly descriptive – it literally means ‘marketplace’, which is all it was until the 20th century – Djerba's major town is worthy of more evocative descriptors.
