Café des Nattes, Sidi Bou Saïd

Dominique B. leaving the Café des Nattes at Sidi Bou Saïd, Sept. 2006

Leaving the beaches of Hammamet, Dominique B. went to Sidi Bou Saïd at the world-famed Café des Nattes.

Since August Macke's time (1914) nothing essential has changed either in the exterior or interior of this typical Moorish coffee-house. Built on the 7th century, before it became a bar, it was a Sufi temple and it still keeps the atmosphere among the silent games of dominoes, the flavored narguilés and the mint teas with pine nuts.
