Neighborhood: Medina

Othman Dey, who ruled from 1598 to 1610, built this magnificent palace. It became a barracks warehouse in the 19th century and then the house of the Tunis Bey's Prime Minister. This building is now listed as a historical monument and distinguishes itself by its Hafsid-style façade and its huge white and black marble entrance door. The visitor will appreciate the gardened central patio with its columned archways, colored ceramic tiles on the walls, and trees planted during the 20th century. Some of the rooms are now the offices of the Conservation of Tunis' Medina organization. Free Entrance. -N.L.
