2- The old town

The natural attractions are not the only highlights in Tamerza; it also boasts an old town that was abandoned in 1969 after a devastating flood. The dry brick and mud houses were unable to withstand the flooding. The ruins showcase the typical architecture of this Sahara region in the early 20th century.
