When strolling around, you'll see a lot of men with yasmine flower behind their left ear. If you ask for an explanation you'll get different answers. First what I was told, this is the sign which says the young guy is ready to get married and searching for a wife. Then I saw not only young guys wearing it, look at this picture.
The truth is, fresh yasmine flower has a very intensive aroma which can be feel for quite a long time and that is what men are doing when strolling around, smeling the flower.
Nabeul home of the ceramic oranges!
Nabeul town is known for it's pottery. The pottery is not unique to Nabeul but most of it is made here (in the factories on the outskirts of the town) so there is good variety and large quatities - although the prices are not competitive. You can, unless you haggle hard, pick up the same item for a lot less in other, smaller, less touristy places. Nabeul is crammed full of pottery, souvenirs & clothes.
There are some interesting buildings here, covered with ceramic tiles which are wonderful to look at.
You can walk around the mosque but you cannot go in.
