Tamimoun abounds with many archaeological sites, including Draa Palace. On the way to this historical landmark, you are accompanied by complete silence and a terrible mirage, towering sand dunes and vast areas of land that are still waiting to be explored, especially since in this part of the land there are places No human foot has set foot on it.
Draa Palace * suggests the atmosphere of the novels of One Thousand and One Nights, like a luxurious building that appears out of nowhere, in the middle of the race, and it is in terms of location isolated from the outside world, although it is located between the municipalities of Awlad Said and Qasr Kaddour at a distance of no more than 30 kilometers. Once you reach the palace, you will get a strange impression. The place is charming, how was it built, and by whom? And why? Many questions remain unanswered. The best place to visit is, as no studies have been issued on the architecture of this monument in an attempt to clarify the ambiguity around it, as it lacks historical and artistic documentation, as its walls are devoid of any inscriptions, just as there are no history books The area has no clear signs of this palace.
Few people in the area who know the palace can provide any details, other than that it is a palace inhabited by a Jewish tribe, but what is the role of this palace?

Nothing remains of them except evidence that they were present, but I used stairs to go up to the upper floor. There are many rooms that were not connected to each other and there are no windows overlooking the outside. Entry to the palace is through One door, and its walls are topped by a watchtower with a height of 2 meters. This fort is a witness to a period of past wars, and it is clear from these rooms and basements scattered in the palace that there was a human civilization
