Tourbet El Bey is a Royal Mausoleum in the old Medina of Tunis, build to be the last resting place the Husainid dynasty the Ottoman rulers of Tunisia at that time. (more on the wikipedia page).

As it’s name says, almost all the rulers, their families, wives and even some concubines and loyal servants are buried in this mausoleum.

The decorations and architectures are very pompous and ostentatious.

the place was transformed into a Museum then closed for renovations.

Renovations that stopped and never continued for more than a decade.

There is something mystical and “Bewitching” in this place, the mixture between luxury and decay.
