Additional Location Information

Beyond the busy beaches, Djerba’s main appeal lies in the ancient architecture and its strong, historic identity as a fortress island. Just 7 Km from Houmd Souk, lies the snow white village of Erriadh with its historic Medina's labyrinth of narrow passageways, Bougainvillea filled courtyards and hidden alcoves.
Upon entering, one feels like stepping back in time: goats roam freely, locals dress in traditional tunics and donkey carts clatter along dusty roads.

Jewish people have lived here (Hara Seghira/small ghetto) since 586 BC, just after the destruction of King Soloman’s temple in Jerusalem.
The synagogue El Ghriba is one of the oldest in the world and an important place of pilgrimage. These days Muslims and Jews live peacefully side-by-side and religion plays an important role in village life.

Djerba: An island of ten thousand palm trees rising from the sea like a mirage. This Polynesia of the Mediterranean is ringed by miles of fine sandy beaches and luxury hotels, ultra modern or built in the fashion of the traditional Djerbian 'menzel', stand ready to welcome the traveler.
Djerba is the largest island in the Gulf of Gabes, off the coast of Tunisia. It is home to an estimated 60 000 people.
It usually has mild and temperate winters and long hot summers
The island is known as the legendary home of the 'lotus eaters' and Ulysses himself. Today it is a very popular tourist destination.
Djerba is the center of the Al-Ibadhiyah sect of Islam and also has a noted Jewish minority. La Griba Synagogue is one of the holiest Jewish sites in North Africa. It draws pilgrims every May from across the country.
