    Explore the Medina

    This is my friend Delila and her son Mohammed

    Sousse medina is small and easily accesible on foot. From the moment you enter the gate you step back in time and all your senses start recognising scents, sights, feel the bygone days that our ancestors not so long ago beheld. Small shops loaded with artefacts, leather goods, jewellery, you name it, adorn the narrow alley streets of the medina. But its the Tunisians which render this place so unique. They are skilled sellers but also good charmers and they will offer you camels if they happen to find a woman of their own taste! The medina is an experience not to be missed.........

    The Ribat

    As almost every Tunisian (and also other Arab) city, Sousse has an old town, called the Medina. This is the ancient center of the city full of narrow, winding streets (souks), little shops (bazaars) and mosques.

    Medina with the old bazar

    by Ikaronaut Written Aug 30, 2004

    "Medina" is a word for a town surrounded by walls. In middle age towns in Mediterranean Tunisia was build in this order to protect themselfs from pirates. Nowadays when town spread much wider than the Medina, Medina remain a heart biting of the town. Old Bazar is there, just enter and open your senses as much as you can...

    The Medina – the main mosque

    From 1988 the Medina of Sousse have been on The World Heritage List (UNESCO).
    Here you will find the main mosque of Sousse, built in the 9th century. From the top of the nador, the watchtower, you will have great views over Sousse.

    Medina - Shopping

    I’m not very fond of shopping, but I spent a lot of time in the marked/Medina just enjoying the atmosphere. They speak whatever language, just a few words, and they say anything to get you in to their shop.
