It’s well known for the generosity and hospitality of its inhabitants. It’s the place where different customs, norms, traditions, values…etc are still preserved deep inside the people, though the changes.
For tourists, kébili is one of the best places to visit. For fun, discovering unknown history, peace, meditation..etc
Also, for those who want to invest, it represents a real good opportunity because there is a luck of investments.
For its citizens, I consider it a jail with no bars, a cemetery of talents as me and my friends call it. The reason might be obvious, and it might be abstract, no one can decide that..or may be I just won’t tell it.
Kapella, African-Latin language, or Capella, Latin language, which means the place of prayers in a church, is from where it’s said that the word Kebili is derived from.
The ancient city of Kébili, Douz, and Ksar Ghilen are the most known touristic places in the city of Kebili and may be even the most known and visited places throughout the whole country because of the amazing nature which they have and that is very rare to find. The ancient city of Kébili is a history on its own, it’s there where my grands lived, there where my mom used to live, there where people go to reminisce.
Recently, a group of people were caught digging in the ancient city of Kebili looking for treasures and fossils. That’s something the inhabitants get used to hear and see, unfortunately. A group of people assigned themselves to protect it on the other side but the efforts weren’t enough I guess.
The other touristic places are also attractive for those who are interested in history and science.
This article is just a general introduction to these places, but next, there will be more details and more informations to share. Enjoy the pictures, enjoy the views.
