"Colour has taken possession of me, no longer do I have to chase after it, I know that it has hold me for ever." 
 – Paul Klee about Sidi Bou Said, April 1914

It's impossible not to fall in love with this place. 

Everywhere you look in this village, you'll see its signature colours – dazzling white walls and staircases, with everything else in shades of vivid blue. Doors are a special feature of the village; ancient, huge and heavy, they're studded with traditional motifs.

Greatest thing about Sidi Bou Said is this concept of old houses almost falling apart, but still beautiful.  It´s one of those special places that have that sense of timeless tranquility, even with so many loud people littering the streets. In Sidi Bou Said culture is everywhere... Try to visit:
