Located in Bou Argoub (40 km from Tunis), in the middle of agricultural farms, this unusual Palace seems outstanding from nowhere.

a false and persistant urban legend says that this italian Palazzo was built for the italian Dictaor Benito Mussolini but none of this is true.

designed by the italian architect Ugo Chiarini, in 1935 for the Garsia, a rich italian landowner family.

decorated with mosaics representing the zodiac signs, thus the name of this palace: Villa zodiac.

unfortunatly, the building is abandoned and some local families are squating it.
couldn’t visit all parts of it.
