TUNIS
Bab el Khadra

Tunis, Tunisia

You won't find too many similar gates anywhere else in Northern Africa. The Bab el Khadra looks like the entrance to a seaside fairy-tale castle somewhere in Europe.
What you see here now is not the original from the 14th century, but a rebuilt version from 1881.
