Photographer's Note

Historic site of the old village of Chenini.
I was allured by the architectural beauty of these Berber houses in the course of restoration.
The old strengthened village of Chenini is a picturesque village which constitutes one of the most beautiful sites Berber of Tunisia. See a sight of the site posted recently.
According to St Augustin the origin of the Berber word Chenini is probably the word Kenini which draws its remote origins from Kanaan the people of the fertile crescent (Syria, Lebanon and Palestine).
More on this historic site, it can be interesting to visit the Web site of the "Association des Amis de la Mémoire de la Terre de Tataouine". But also articles published in Wikipedia.
