JERBA
Jama' Ghizen
Jama' Ghizen, Jerba, Tunisia

This small mosque, is only few kilometres from the northern coast, and easy to get to when you drive along the main road. It is the focal point of a small village of houses scattered arounf the palm trees. Note its distinct minaret, where we see a rather unusual fusion of Jerba's coned roofs and the more standard Tunisian pointed roof.
