Blue and white theme and Tunisian doors in Sidi Bou Said

Sidi Bou Said  is a pretty little village full of orange trees and enchanting blue and white buildings, full of artists and cats!

During the 1920s, Rodolphe d’Erlanger, a French painter applied the blue and white theme all over the town.

There are numerous decorated doorways in the town to delight the happy traveller.

Here’s an over grown jungle outside this particularly cosy looking homestead entrance.

Here’s a door that seems to have escaped the regulations though!

It sits at the top of its whitewashed steps inviting you to climb up and escape the sweltering heat in its cool interior.

And here’s some of the curious and hungry cats that congregate whenever there is food around . .
