Sidi Bou Said

Tunisia - Northern Tunisia

Sidi Bou Said’s narrow flagged streets, houses of blue mashrabiya latticework, cascading pink bougainvillea and wrought iron filigree, all painted in bright yellow or blue. The styles here are unique.

For a moment, watch over the azure blue sea from the comfort of a Sis Chabaane café, sipping mint tea or thirst-quenching lemonade.

Peek over a wall if you dare, and admire the simple whitewash facades of ancient palaces, wherein an artisan is painting a new landscape, or wander into the souk and hackle with a local to buy a carpet, a ceramic vase, or perhaps a pair of leather slippers that take your fancy.
