Bab Souika
Tunis, Tunisia

Bab Souika was hastely rebuilt, but in style, after that clashes with the Islamists in the 1980's brought a fire over the quarter.
The new style of Bab Souika has proven successful, and this area has become very popular with locals. Its position is also strategic: right up Halfaouine starts, and right down the suuqs start.
