Tunisian Tiles

Here are some more examples of the extensive use of tiles in Tunisia.  Tiles are used not only for a functional purpose but also for a decorative/ornamental purpose.


 Here tiles surround either side of an ornately carved wooden door




 In this photograph, the tiles decorate the steps leading up to a house.




Here, tiles are used in an understated elegant way to highlight not the steps themselves as in the previous photograph but the masonry near the steps.
