The Bab el Louk souk dates back more than 80 years. As you can see, the front door bears inscriptions in French. Now is a pretty sloppy, but you can find traces of the past in its corners. It is a food market, which was once one of the city's gourmet areas. When expatriates moved to live in residential areas, they left the Souk Bab el Louk almost abandoned. In its golden age, it was next to the opera house and the observatory.
