Visit Haouaria : El-Haouaria is the city located most at the tip of Cap Bon: the Ras Adar raises its relief (about 350 meters above sea level) as if to mark the tip: a small road crosses it, at the end of which a beautiful view lies on the Mediterranean, with Sicily offshore, no more than 140 kilometers away. El-Haouaria, a small town of 10,000 inhabitants, has become a master in the art of falconry: it is here a passion shared by many inhabitants. From March, the falconers capture their birds of prey using traps made up of planted nets equipped with bait, in which the birds come to get entangled. The training is a skillful and fast business, the raptors being released after the hunting season in the summer. About 3 kilometers from the center of El-Haouaria are the caves of Ghar el-Kebir: these caves are not formed naturally since they were dug mainly in Roman times when thousands of enslaved people were busy working the rock. At that time, the site served as quarries from which were extracted large blocks of stone used, among other things, for the construction of monuments of Carthage. The caves are partly open to visitors
