Sidi Khelifa is a rural village
built around the mausoleum of its patron saint
of the same name who founded it in the XIXth century.
In the mid 80s the village was the object of an
original experiment that consisted in adding new
buildings using ancestral architectural techniques
and resorting exclusively to local materials.
It is worth seeing.
The village lies next to an ancient site: Pheradi
Majus. The excavated vestiges date to the IInd
and IIIrd centuries. A triumphal gate, in perfect
state, gives onto the forum lined with shops,
a nymphaeum from which spring water flowed, a
capitoline temple, baths etc.
At the top of the wooded hill overlooking the
site the walls of a temple dedicated to Venus,
subsequently transformed into a Byzantine fortress,
can be seen. From there, the view spans the sea
and the foothills of the Dorsal.
