Sousse: Dar Essid

If you want to have a glimse at 18th century lifestyle in Tunisia, go to Dar Essid in Sousse and spend some time there. This place too took me to my childhood days, my ancestral house had many similarities with this one.

The architecture is beautiful, the furnishing are marvelous.

A government official stayed with his two wives in this house and do not miss the bedroom.

The bedroom: This place has two beds and a lamp. A story goes that the man filled amp with oil, lit it and used to be in action with his wives until lamp went out, to prove his 'stamina'.

Sousse: Ribat

Ribat, in Sousse medina, offers you a glimpse of how a fort and religious place will look like. This is a place where religious warriors lived and fought from. Visting this place is a photographer's delight.
