Nice clean place where you get a lot of information about historical and religious architecture. There are a lot of rooms to discover. You need to have a good head for hights not cause of high, but of strange ladders and unsecured walkways if you wanna go on top. Interesting explanations in english also, nice place to sit down and rest in the sun.

This museum is in fact a typical house of the period (17th century) originally belonging to the Jellouli family (note different spelling). The house has a courtyard and several floors and the rooms are well displayed with many artefacts of the perio, including costumes. Among the attractions are some stunning examples of calligraphy. If you are in Sfax, this should not be missed,

I have been during the cooperative exhibition "New Dimension" which united international artists from different disciplines. A very positive energy and lovely people in the place. A spectacular journey to enjoy art pieces and a deep art critics conversation.

Se si è in macchina vale la pena fare una sosta al sito dell'antica Thyna sperando che il guardiano sia presente...
Il sito non è ancora stato scavato del tutto però non si vedono neanche lavori in corso. Quello che si vede sono i resti delle vecchie terme con qualche bel mosaico e le rovine di diverse abitazioni tra cui la casa di Dioniso da dove proviene l'affresco che oggi si vede al Bardo di Tunisi. Il posto è molto suggestivo e speriamo che venga riportato alla luce completamente in breve tempo. Meno di quindici chilometri da Sfax.

Ce marché est magnifique ! Plein de vie avec une belle architecture.
Un endroit à visiter à Sfax, obligatoirement.
C'est un endroit atypique du shopping Sfaxien et un endroit où les produits sont typiquement de là-bas !
