A pyramid dedicted to a Mauretanean queen, I think, who ruled the north-west of the Maghreb. There is an area where you can park your vehicle providing some money. You can find there restaurants and cafés.

Quick tour of the mausoleum. Really not much to see just the outside of the tomb. There is a camel that does rides and a guy that serves tea. But the camel looks old and sad. This is a heritage site that needs restoration.

Got a lot out of this visit as we had a great guide who also happened to be a geologist. The visit would have been more enjoyable if there had been signage and also some literature on the site.
