The spirit

Since 2019, Dar Khira has been the home of heritage and local products. An authentic, traditional setting in the heart of Béja’s medina. It’s a family-run business where you can discover the gastronomy and know-how of the Béja region.

As a defender of the heritage of the medina and its region, within the framework of the Forum, I have initiated with my friends and colleagues several culinary cultural events, including the Gerbe d’Or festival, which takes place during the harvest period.
