The North African village of Douiret, carved into a kilometre-long stretch of mountainside, once housed a thriving Berber community and its fortified granaries, called ksour.

Today, the village is almost abandoned, with just a handful of houses still inhabited and, from a distance, the only sign of its existence is the simple white mosque that still stands at its centre.

Dotted around the village are some olive-oil presses, three of which are still in use.
In which North African country will you fi nd Douiret?
