Tunisia

Portfolio - Tunisian doors

Porte à Sidi Bou Said

Ah, Tunisian doors! Red, yellow, green, but mostly blue and white like those in Sidi Bou Said. The Tunisian doors with their three handles can be seen everywhere.

These three handles are nor there randomly! Each corresponds to a different bell, so that people always knew who was visiting them before opening the door.

The handle located on the left side on the top of the door was used by guests. The one on the right side was used by the master of the house.

Lastly, the small handle at the bottom of the right side of the door was that of the wife and children. Replaced by intercoms, these handles have lost their original function today.

However, these colourful doors remain the finest decoration of Tunisian streets.
