Matmata : Michelin's recommendations


Buried between 5-10m underground, each of Matmata’s troglodyte dwellings is laid out around a central courtyard which allows lights to penetrate the various rooms in the house. Individual granary stores are located just above the living quarters, but still beneath ground. If you’re interested in finding out more about these underground dwellings, head to the Matmata Museum, which is also housed in one of them.
