Stop At: Hammam Mellegue, Tunisia

Mellegue bath is a Roman site located 15 kilometers from Kef in Tunisia. Thus, Hammam Mellègue is now one of the most famous spas in Tunisia, which for more than thirty years has been attracting the greed of geologists and scientists around the world due to its Iridium layer which has become a unique reference in the world and which was officially accepted as a STARTOTYPE in 1991.
Like most spas in Tunisia, Hammam Mallègue is famous for its therapeutic virtues but above all for the survival of ancient practices and the conservation of its monumental structures. Hammam Mellègue is also famous for its hot spring and its Hammam. Its architecture, its temple and its many swimming pools dating back almost 2 millennia stand with their massive walls and their ocher yellow stone domes like a golden monument in the middle of greenery, seized by a religious silence, disturbed only by the waterfalls of the Mellegue river.

Stop At: Kasbah Of Le Kef, Le Kef Tunisia

Climb up to the Ottoman citadel which faces a sumptuous panorama of fields and forests. The Kef's main attraction can be spotted from nearly everywhere around the city. A stronghold of some sort has occupied this site since the 5th century BC. The fortress boasts great views across the rolling blue-green landscape dotted with pine trees. Built in 1600 by the Ottomans, the Citadel of Kef dominates like “a golden crown” the hill of “Djebel Addir” in the Tunisian town of Kef.
The Kasbah Citadel is considered a shining jewel in this calm city and has remained standing and unshakeable for four centuries, despite invasions, opening its arms like a guardian angel that protects it from external threats, on the northwest side of the country.

Stop At: Musee Des Arts Et Traditions Populaires, Rue De La Kasbah, Le Kef 7100 Tunisia

We leave the Kasbah to a well-laid-out museum, housed in a sprawling, beautifully ornate Sufi complex founded in 1784. The museum concentrates on the culture of the region's Berber nomads, and exhibits include traditional clothing, Berber tents, and farming tools, but the nominal entry fee is worth it for the architecture alone.
