"Sidi Bou Said this lovely blue and white village, gaily perched on the cliffs overlooking the Bay of Tunis, is perhaps the most cherished in Tunisia. The legend tells of Saint Louis - coming to wage war he fell in love with a Berber princess and, changing his name became the patron saint of this village where he lived in joy and peace. Visit Sidi Bou Said, fall under its charm and the story will seem most logical.
Following the cobblestone streets winding upwards, visitors will catch glimpses of the emerald sea with the mountain of Bou Kornine and the southern beaches of Tunis across the Bay. Sit and sip a green tea with mint at the "Café des Nattes" or continue upwards to the "lighthouse" and the fabulous view from "Sidi Chebaane" café. During the warm summer evenings concerts of traditional Tunisian music, malouf, attract visitors and Tunisians alike."
