According to one tradition, the princess Aziza Othmana (who died in 1669) was the granddaughter of Othman Dey and the wife of Hamouda Pacha. She is an intrinsic part of the history of the city for her legendary generosity towards the destitute people. She devoted herself to charity and bequeathed to the people her fortune through Muslim “Habous” (namely goods and lands allocated to pious charity), resulting notably in the founding of a hospital. This princess, who requested to have her grave adorned with flowers daily, lies to rest along with her family members and her servants in this richly decorated ottoman mausoleum covered with colored ceramic tiles and finely-cut stucco.
