Othman Dey, who ruled from 1598 to 1610, built this magnificent palace in the early 17th century. It became a barracks warehouse in the 19th century and then the house of the Tunis Bey?s Prime Minister. This building is now listed as a historical monument and distinguishes itself by its Hafsid-style fašade and its huge white and black marble entrance door. The interior features a nice courtyard garden. Entrance is free.
