Courtyard of Dar Sebastian in Hammamet, Tunisia. Now a cultural centre, this villa (dar means home in Arabic) was built by a wealthy Romanian called George Sebastian.

Erwin Rommel was based here during World War II, and Winston Churchill later wrote his memoirs here.

Note, on the wall beside the open door behind the corner column, the carving of a cat, its limbs splayed out in all directions.
