Welcome to Tataouine


It’s a small modern town lacking a medina, and although solo travellers are relatively scarce, coachloads of tourists pass through regularly, often stopping to sample the delicious corne de gazelle pastries the town is renowned for.

Check reliable travel advice before visiting – some Western governments currently advise against non-essential travel to this part of southern Tunisia.
