Travel Tips for Mahdia

Visiting Mosques

by aliante1981

Many Asian and African countries, including Tunisia, are predominantly Muslim, so the religious sites you are most likely to encounter, are, predictably, mosques. This is a brief tip of advice, written from the point of view of a non-Muslim, female traveler (yours truly!!!):

- Do dress modestly, covering arms, legs, shoulders and the like, no frivolous dressing will be allowed. Hire the modest dress if needed;

- Check whether you are allowed into the mosque at all, since most of them admit you only into the courtyard, and some do not admit non-Muslims at all. However, in several countries you may be able to visit the interiors of many mosques;

- Respect the boundaries laid and do not attempt to enter further (I saw such a thing once, and it did arouse ill-feeling);

- If possible try to avoid going even to the courtyard on Friday afternoon, since I remember this is the most important praying time of the week;

- If you are curious, feel free to ask questions (though not of people hurrying to pray) and most likely you will be answered: IĆ½ve always found people proud of their culture and heritage and ready to explain it;

- Do not criticize things we in Europe and in the West might (such as separate praying space for men and women), for such are the customs of the land and mosques are the least appropriate places for such topics.

This advice is based only on common sense, but it allowed me to see something of the mosques and learn loads of interesting info on Muslim countries, their religion, and culture. Really helped me when we had a general education class on religions at University:))

Surrounding the Borj el Kebir, Mahdia's cemetery would certainly be a stunning place to decompose. In summer, it may seem a bit hot and dusty, but in springtime the white gravestones contrast with lush green grass and bright yellow dandelions, with an azure sea as a backdrop. Judging by the empty drinks cans and the sheep droppings, it is a favourite location for both picnics and grazing.

Borj el-Kebir

by Willettsworld

This massive square fortress, built in 1595, is commandingly situated on the highest point on the peninsula. It was built on the site of a palace built by Mahdia's founder, Obaid Allah el Mahdi in the 10th century. In the courtyard of the fortress is a small mosque. In the masonry of the tower at the southwest corner are two reliefs which are believed to have come from an earlier building.

Mahdia, Tunisia

by DenysUK

A wonderful experience and a great holiday. On my journey to the hotel, my first impression was that the country was run down and initially regretted my choice. However, the local people were exceptionally friendly and family orientated. The beaches are very clean and tidy with pretty much good weather all round.
Local markets are a must and remember to barter. As a guide, I halved their original price and took it from there. Leather and silver goods were in abundance with some great bargins to be found. Try not to look too interested and give the impression you can get it cheaper elsewhere to get the best from your bartering!
Some camel excursions are very basic but fine if you dont want to pay top prices.
Water sports at the resorts are very cheap and often last much longer than anticipated. On the whole, a great holiday that I would love to repeat.
