The Old Mines

Located on semi-arid land and closed in the early seventies, mines and Touissit Zellidja Boubeker today are the remains of a ghost town. These former miners’ villages almost deserted us back forty years ago and then we enter into another world. Only activity Boubker it remains today only the ruins of the industry of yesteryear, old mines and dust flying in the streets of this city scenes reminiscent of a Western. Touissit survived thanks to the reopening of the smelter Oued El Himmer.
