The Green Guide

Useful information


In 1821 the sultan gifted this house to the United States to accommodate its diplomats. It is from here that, in 1942, a team from the OSS, the future CIA, prepared the American landings in North Africa. Still American property, the former legation has remained in its original state since the 1940s: you can visit the consul's office, as well as the meeting and reception rooms, which are lavishly decorated with paintings, old maps and period photos. A pavilion is dedicated to the writer Paul Bowles.
