    Zaouia Zakkak

    Where?

    Inside the medina, on the corner between rue Tazerka and rue Dar Abid

    What?

    A splendid 17th century minaret in stone with tile decorations on the top two tiers. This octagonal Ottoman minaret can, unfortunately, only be viewed from the outside if you are a non-Muslim.

    100m west of the Ribat is the striking octagonal minaret, in a style almost reminiscent of Renaissance architecture, of the Zaouia Zakkak, which dates from the Turkish period in the 17th century. The complex includes a mosque, a medersa (Koranic school) and a mausoleum.
