The Architecture Guide To Tunis

My visit to Tunis was brief. A day trip from the city of Hammamet in which we were staying and therefore was only able to do a whistle-stop tour.

Badou Museum, Tunisia

In that time we visited the Badou Museum. The museum is the second largest in Africa after the Cairo Museum. Inside the building hosts a number of exhibitions about the history of Tunis and some of its neighbouring African countries.

But the most inspiring is its building. With beautiful traditional design adorned to match Tunisian culture and style. With a hint of opulence.

Architecture in Tunis

Islamic architecture and Roman architecture are expressed in various buildings in Tunisia. The medina of Tunis is World Heritage Site of UNESCO and is a typical example of Islamic architecture. Given the cosmopolitan nature of cities in Tunisia, they have retained a diversity and juxtaposition of styles. Many buildings were designed by many different architects, artisans and entrepreneurs during the French protectorate.
