Created as an orchard, Djerba Heritage is a tribute to the islanders’ ingenuity. An ethnological and funny approach of the Djerbian habits which will make you discover the intimate way of life and also the well adapted architecture of this country. You will participate to ancient activities such as pottery, weaving or olive oil production. Djerba Heritage is an invitation to discover the island habits, craft and houses.
In the menzel, brilliantly reconstituted in the middle of an orchard, with its gardens full of cactus and aloes, the houch, a typical house, has an exteriorly closed architecture. The openings are discreet, the wall thick and the spaces well thought. A lively demonstration of the Djerbian habits and jobs for your biggest pleasure. In the weaving workshop, with its typical shape, the weaver explains its job; in the pottery workshop hidden under the vaulted stones, we enjoy watching the potter’s fingers working the clay; the underground olive oil mill will help you to understand what exactly a first pressure olive oil is. Do not forget to watch the camel that untiringly brings water from the well. An instructive and funny visit for all the family.
