Beni Isguen

Algeria - Saharan Algeria

Beni Isguene, founded in the middle of the 11th century and is according to tradition a sacred town. At the west end of Beni Isguene stands the white twentieth-century mosque.

In the heart of the Sahara Desert, this oasis was constructed in the skill and technical abilities of the time and is still remarkable when looking at how they controlled water and the cultivation of trees such as lemon trees, olive trees, date palms, fig trees and vines.

The town is a closed society and is respectful of all travellers.
