The watchtower

Musée des Oasis

Inside Ksars, each watchtower (except the two in the entrance) belongs to an inhabitant, who in ancient times was responsible for controlling its surroundings and, in case of armed conflict, defending his part of the wall.

After peace came to the presaharic valleys, these towers became little sitting rooms where guests are received.
