Mides is a mountain oasis in south of Tunisia. It is located on the saharian route linking Tebessa to Gafsa. It is perched on the verge of a canyon where one can find fossils and colored minerals. Mides, new village, is in heart of the neighbouring palm tree grove, rich in dates but also in oranges and figs.
The site was used by film-makers, namely for “the English Patient”” and “Fort Saganne”
