Explore More About Djerba:

Djerba, an island off the coast of Tunisia, is known for Mediterranean beaches and whitewashed desert towns influenced by Berber, Arab, Jewish and African cultures. Houmt Souk is the main city, known for its handicraft markets, fishing port, and 16th-century fortress, Borj el Kebir. To the south is El Ghriba synagogue, a pilgrimage site for North African Jews.

After being conquered by the Arabs in 655 and made a dependency of Tunis and Kairouan (Al-Qayrawān), it passed back and forth between Sicilian, Norman, and Ḥafṣid control from the 12th to the 15th century. After several unsuccessful attempts by the Spanish to take the island in the 16th century, it passed under Ottoman control until the arrival of the French in the late 19th century. Jerba Island, now a part of Tunisia, is noted for its orchards (especially dates and olives), fishing (sponges and oysters), woolens and blankets, and pottery.

Its fine beaches and international airport have also made it a popular tourist resort. Ḥawmat al-Sūq is the principal town and chief market center, and Ajīm is the main port. The population is mostly Amazigh (Berber) in origin; there also remains a portion of the island’s once significant Jewish community, which was one of the oldest in the world. A small proportion of the population belongs to the Kharijite sect of Islam. Pop. (2004) 139,517.
