  • "The 23 BASTION or" KASR ERRIASS "(Palace of SPOKES). A place not missed, built the Ottoman era. "" its architecture tells the story of an era well riche.ces rooms beautiful sound "zelije" earthenware, its steam room requires its kitchens, one back in time. front looks go, it's dark in there but good natural lighting study of architecture gives a light that between our soul feels happiness. go to the terrace and you will see the sea. the slot floor seems as it n had no wall the Rais could directly access the sea it was just enough that he get on his boat.
