Three Villages Are Situated In The Environs, Sala, El-Kesir, And El-Ghetar.

A fraction of the tribe of Hammand deposit their grain in Ghafsa.

This town is famous for its manufactories of baraeans and blankets ornamented with pretty coloured flowers. There is also a nitre and powder-manufactory, the former obtained from the earth by a very rude process.

The environs are beautifully laid out in plantations of the fig, the pomegranate, and the orange, and especially the datepalm, and the olive-tree. The oil made here is of peculiarly good quality, and is exported to Tugurt, and other oases of the Desert.
