'''Le Bardo''' ({{lang-ar|الباردو}} ''{{audio|help=no|Bardo.wav|El bardow}}'' also '''Bārdaw''', '''Bardaw''', and '''Bardois''') is a [[Tunisia]]n city west of [[Tunis]]. As of 2004, the population is 73,953.
 
Built by the [[Hafsid dynasty]] in the 15th14th century, the name Bardo comes from the Spanish word "prado" meaning a garden. Bardo became a residence of the Tunis court in the 18th century. With the arrival of [[Husainid Dynasty|Hussein]]ite [[bey]]s, Bardo became a political, intellectual and religious center. The ancient beys' residence was the site of the Tunisian National Assembly headquarters, and the [[Bardo National Museum (Tunis)|National Museum]] opened there in 1888.
 
The city gave its name to the [[Treaty of Bardo]], signed in nearby [[Ksar Saïd Palace]], which placed Tunisia under a [[France|French]] [[protectorate]] in May 1881.
