*<see name="Dar Djellouli" alt="" address="" directions="See map for location." phone="" url="" hours="" price="3 TND" lat="" long="">The Djellouli family has provided Sfax with a number of its governors over the years, particularly during the 1700s and 1800s. Dar Djellouli is also referred to as the Governor's Mansion, and is an example of traditional Medina architecture. It is built around a courtyard that is open to the sky, with two floors of balconies on four sides looking down on it. The rooms open onto these balconies, and house cultural items from the 1800s and even earlier. Costumes from the period can be viewed, as well as examples of cooking, calligraphy, embroidery, perfume distillation and furniture.</see>

Café Diwan is not a museum but a tea shop, which makes it doubly worth the visit. Enjoy a <i>Chicha</i> (Hookah), your choice of tea (Thé al la menthe with pine nuts is recommended) or coffee (espresso, direct or even Café Turc) or coca cola.

On the roof you will notice a circular wall, about waist height. This wall was the foundation of a water tower in the late 1800s. On your way out, slip into the circular room with the dome-shaped roof that supported the water tank, and listen to the reverberation as you speak. (Note: pay for you drinks as you leave, and consider leaving your change as a tip.)</see>
