Though not the oldest, largest or most religiously significant mosque in Tunisia, this mosque is one of the most familiar to visitors because it’s one of the most photographed. It’s the two ribbed domes that do it, along with the octagonal minaret, all of it in white that create such a feast for the viewfinder. And as the light changes the mosques appears to take on another shape and colour all together making it even more the darling of the lens.

Inside the workmanship is again interesting – a domed prayer hall decorated with white stucco work and held up by antique columns.

Sidi Bou Makhlouf is in Le Kef, a white and elegant mountain town quite a bit off the regular tourist trails.
