Palace Dar Nejma Ezzahra, Sidi Bou Said

Historic Site · Tourist Spot
If it weren't for the former residents of Palace Dar Nejma Ezzahra, this town would not be painted its signature colors: blue and white. This palace once housed Baron Rodolphe d'Erlanger, the man who chose the town's color scheme. During World War II, the early 20th-century palace suffered damage and looting, but the house has been renovated and opened as a museum. In addition to its architectural and historical value, this attraction also has a concert hall and houses a center for Arabic and Mediterranean music.
