El Haouaria

The settlement of El Haouaria is primarily known for two things - its craft of falcon training (the village even serves host the annual Falconry Festival in May, and the wild gracious birds are often sighted here in spring) and the Roman Caves, carved inside sand cliffs several kilometers to the north.

Do & See

While urban life might not exactly be Hammamet's main draw, its cream-colored Medina is an attractive oriental maze of windy alleys emblematic of the region, and a definitive must-visit for holidaymakers. Tourist infrastructure in Hammamet is ever-evolving, with vacationer's paradise of Yasmine occupying multiple acres of land south of town. Around Hammamet, multiple archaeological sites and coastal settlements serve as excellent field-trip destinations to those willing to venture elsewhere.
