Rue Habib Thameur
Sidi Bou Said, Tunisia

Everything in Sidi Bou Said centers around Rue Habib Thameur. The road climbs the hill, passing at first well-maintained white houses, always with blue details and plants and flowers all over.
It soon enters the zone of tourist stalls. All-absorbing as the shops always are, this is the place where you lose sight of Sidi Bou Said's unique identity. But just for a little while.
At its summit the street opens up for a little while in an unnamed square.
