The Zitouna Mosque within the Medina of Tunis is quite interesting, as it seems every single one of the small, winding roads will take you to it one way or the other. The building in itself is huge, though not spectacular or fancy in any...More

Pay attention to the visit time! You get in by a side door and arrive in a big area, with columns and beautiful decoration! You can see inside, should be wonderfully, but at that time I could not visit!

Mosque in the middle of the Medina. Worth to see... Unfortunately, it is not allowed to step in. But you can meet nice and interesting people in front of it😊

Impressive and very old, but the permission is not allowed to non-muslims, so we only saw it from the outside and from a terrace cafe..

This old mosque became a symbol of Tunisia, It is a major precious piece of heritage of which the Tunisian people are proud. It looks far much nicer from the inside

I wasn't able to go in the afternoon when the mosque opens to visitors. I did enjoy strolling through the souk on my way there. The mosque is right in the middle of the market and so it's hard to see very much from the...More
