The fact that Sidi Bou Said is one of the most beautiful places of the tunisian Mediteranian cost is due to Baron Rodolphe d'Erlanger, son of a french banker with german roots. He moved to Sidi Bou Said in 1912 and dedicated himself to the protection and conservtion of the ancient village. The Baron himself built a villa called „Nejma Ez-Zahre“ („sparkling star“) – for decades a meeting place for artists and bohemians from all over Europe (last but not least Paul Klee, August Macke and Louis Moilliet > see Café de Nattes). Today the property is a museum for maghrebian music. Even if you are not too much into music you can enjoy the garden, the architecture and the great view.
