Bab Jdid (The New Gate)
This is the second gate opened by the Hafsides. The Europeans also called it the Blacksmiths’ Gate, because it gave (and still gives) access to their souk. The neighboring district is home to numerous dwellings (palaces, large mansions and houses), stores housing a wide variety of trades, zaouïas and medersas. Among the bourgeois and aristocratic residences are Dar El Beji, Dar Djellouli, Dar Zarrouk and Dar Bayram.
