With its construction started in 1576, the complex bears many well-preserved Ottoman pavilions surrounded by 17th- and 19th-century domed mosques. Once the seat of the French governor, the palace also has many Moorish-style buildings that housed the 19th-century French nobility.

Very nice and historical place. Beautifully decorated. Close to the see and beach and Martyr Square - the hub of the city. Well preserved.
