I love light colors, especially the blue color, so when i went there once in my life, i felt i’m me. I still remember that place, 30 minutes away from the capital city Tunis.

Sidi Bou Said

Sidi Bou Said, you won’t believe that this place is real, walking through the alleys of Sidi Bou Siid made me feel like Cindrella will at any moment step out from one of the doors, i even felt that i will soon find Charlock Holmes solving a crime in one of the turns, this place is a fairytale.

 

On on top of a steep cliff overlooking the Mediterranean sea is located this small village, and what makes its special is that its white houses sympathize with the blue doors and windows, a great reflection of the reaction between the sky and the sea. Shops and kiosks selling souvenirs, antiques, paintings and handmade gifts are also scattered in the village, i was in a hurry so i didn’t buy any but in my next visit to Sidi Bou Siid, i will for sure get me something.

But i made pictures with an eagle once again in my life, wasn’t for free but it didn’t cost me much. One of the most famous landmarks of Sidi Bou Said is what is known as the palace of « Najma Zahraa » built by the english Erlanger.

 

A manifestation of a great love and beauty reflected in its angles. It has become today a museum that displays musical instruments and hold concerts of classical and arabic music.

Having a coffee in Sidi Bou Said, looking at the sea and enjoying the sound of the coffee music that plays with the sea waves and the people’s foot steps, what a symphony.

 

The entire town is simply beautiful, with flowers draped from almost every wall and doorway, and beautiful flowing vines hanging throughout the entire area. Sidi Bou Said is so beautiful, in fact, that many artists have taken up residence here.The town is also said to have inspired famous artist Paul Klee, and famous writer Andre Gide.

The entire town has an intense feel of artistry and craftsmanship, and the locals are very proud of their town, and don’t hesitate to show it off.
Much of the town is quiet, and inhabited mostly by locals going about their daily business. Other areas are aimed more towards tourists.
