    Local house

    This is a part of the house I liked the most, so-called Andalusian garden, with exotic plants grow around and a huge birdcage. There is also an impluvium which is an underground water cistern collecting the rainwater coming from the numerois terraces.
    The glass roof cover the space used during the evenings and another summer bedroom where a scene of the Bride's Henna ceremony is represented.

    I am not sure about, but it seems this is the mistress of the house. My french is very poor and I didn't understand what she was telling me, however, she willingly posed me in front of the kitchen dressed in the traditional local cloth.

    Mistress of the house?

    Dar El Annabi

    Dar El Annabi is traditional Tunisian house open for the public visitors, in order to see the intimacy of a typical Tunisian high class home.
    The house has been constructed at the end of the 18th century and decorated and rebuilt during the 20th century as a summer residence by Taleb El Annabi, son of the Mufti Mohamed, a man of religion and law.

    A QUIETER SIDE OF LIFE

    Although Sidi Bou Said is a touristy place, you can venture off the main street to some of the side streets to see a quieter side of life.
