Sfax Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

The prosperity of Sfax, the second largest city in Tunisia and the country’s leading port, is not based around tourism. The atmosphere here is different to that of other Tunisian towns and the city has the feel of any busy, modern metropolis. It has, however, preserved its medina and its massive fortifications, where you’ll still find several beautiful palaces. In the modern part of the city, visitors can admire a number of interesting early 20C buildings, whose architecture takes its inspiration from Andalusian-Moorish buildings.
