During our visit various groups of faithful arrived in echelons, who paid homage to the saint with dances, songs and prayers.

From here we went to visit the Aglabiti cisterns, large circular basins, the largest has a diameter of 128 m., Intended for the collection of white water, for drinking and irrigation.

Walking through the streets of the city, we were approached by a gentleman on a bicycle, who volunteered to accompany us (all are very curious and kind to tourists, they are very keen to make their places of worship known) to visit the Zaouia de Sidi Amor Aba covered by domes with inside an exhibition of giant objects covered with writing. Wandering around the city, we arrived at the medina, very fascinating, mysterious and intimate.

In the narrow and elegant streets there are houses with very white walls and blue doors, walking one arrives at the districts dedicated to commerce, each with a different activity, the souks, are busy and teeming with life. Everything is surrounded by ocher-colored brick walls, interspersed with bastions and crenellated towers, the evening comes to an end with a dinner in the medina and the makroud accompanied by mint tea could not be missed.
