The puerta del mar, which is now called France's Door is what divides the fascinating Medina of Tunis with the modern part of the city. Its appearance is magestic, and is reminiscent of the old forts or Ribats that were found in that area. It's the perfect entry to the magical world of shopping and markets. I recommend that you take a moment to admire its beauty and majesty. It was as if we entered into a medieval fortress, when in fact we'd come to toil away our money!
