I had lived & worked in Tunisia for more than a year before I finally made it here to the palace called Ennejma Ezzahra (which apparently means "Star of Venus" in Arabic), built by the Baron Rudolpe d'Erlanger.

In addition to the house, the grounds are lovely and the views over the Bay of... More

Sidi Bou Said is one of the most charming and amazing places I've ever been to. Reminds me of greece's Santorini, however it's got it's own unique character. Photographer's paradise. A must-see!!! here's a few photos in my livejournal: http://adamtasimages.livejournal.com/985.html

For all us Chelsea supporters this is the place to see and be pictured at. Blue and white everywhere with absolutely no red!! Epic location. Lots to buy and haggle for. Great leather goods around and pottery. Enjoy
