Dar Essid Museum, Sousse: 12 reviews and 46 photos

The first wife's bedroom is to the right of the entrance hall. On the wall at the back of the table is a beautiful marriage contract that is approx 700 years old. The two golden pictures opposite each other are made of 18 carat gold and are chapters from the Koran. The old lamp was used from Roman times by the husband to ensure that he gave his wives pleasure. In order to prove his stamina and control, the man had to continue as long as the lamp remained alight, but could not take his pleasure until it went out!
