Sidi Bou Said this lovely blue and white village, gaily perched on the cliffs overlooking the Bay of Tunis,is perhaps the most cherished in Tunisia. The legend tells of Saint Louis - coming to wage war he fell in love with a Berber princess and, changing his name became the patron saint of this village where he lived in joy and peace. Visit Sidi Bou Said, fall under its charm and the story will seem most logical.
Sidi Bou Said is still under reputation as a town of artists. Many famous artists lived there or visited Sidi Bou Said. Most famous is probably Paul Klee.
