Tiebele Corabie Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 36 photos

Tiébélé is famous for its nicily painted kassena houses. The traditional windowless houses, the so-called sukhala, are built like a fortress. The Kassena women decorate the walls with guinea-fowl feathers in teh colours red, black and white. The geometrical patterns, motifs and symbols have all a meaning. You can see calabash, boa, crosses, tortoise, sun, moon or lizards.

The highlight of Tiébélé is the chief’s compound, theTièbèle's Cour Royale in the centre of the town.
