My boyfriend really enjoyed this and got some great photos of the views from the top of the fort. A lot of things to look at like the marble ruins statues when you walk through the door. Only problem is the writing on the pictures explaining what happened is not in english.

I went here at the hottest part of the day when the temperature was 40c and appreciated the coolness if the interior. Lots if step to climb but fairly well preserved.

Photogenic fort, nice views. Good if you have small boys with you as they love all the things to climb on.

We visited here mainly because the museum we wanted to see was closed on a Friday (beware, Friday not the usual Monday seems to be the day cultural institutions close on Djerba.)

I would read up on this place before going or have information to hand. Interesting history and great to be able to wander around the ruins freely.

We stopped off here for about 40 minutes as part of an organised excursion and thought it was quite nice. Our guide told us a little about it before we got there and just as well as I don't remember seeing that much by way of explanation when we were there.

We visited Fort Ghazi Mustapha last July (2012) as we just fancied a few hours out of the hotel. We went by taxi from the hotel and he dropped us just outside the fort.
