Was my first visit to the country Nice idea that the Tunisian people take off the walls and kept the Gate to save the heritage of the old town. They used to do small street shows there Need some lightly in modern style for night visitors

Built in 1912. Feels like a piece of history happened to stay there with no reason. It serves like the enterance of the souq with little shops. Nice to see.
