Matmata

Matmata

Matmata is a small village in southern Tunisia where Berbers live in traditional troglodyte homes. Even though Matmata was only discovered in 1967 it's said that the town has a much longer history than that. Rumour has it that in ancient times, the Roman Empire sent Egyptian tribes to make their homes in the Matmata region where people already lived. The residents abandoned their homes and dug themselves cave dwellings. At night the village residents would creep out of the holes in the earth and attack invaders. That's what the word on the street is at least.
