Chenini┬á(Arabic:┬áě┤┘ć┘Ő┘ć┘ŐÔÇÄ) is a ruined┬áBerber┬ávillage in the┬áTataouine┬ádistrict in southern┬áTunisia. Located on a hilltop near a modern village of the same name, Chenini was a fortified┬ágranary, or┬áksar┬á(plural┬áksour.) Like other ksour created by North African Berber communities, Chenini was built on a hilltop - in this instance, between two hilltop ridges - to help protect it from raiding parties. The oldest structures on the hillside date back to the 12th century; some of the buildings are still used to store grain for the villagers living in the valley below. Chenini is a regular stop on southern Tunisia's┬áksar┬átrail, along with the villages of┬áDouiret,┬áKsar Ouled Soltane┬áand┬áKsar Hadada.
