It is all about history and culture and beauty. This mosque has it all. Lovely interior, intact, full of rich history, and serenity. The interior is in built yesterday condition.

This is a must visit. The heart of old Tunis. Go around the place and feel history in the air. And don't miss enjoying a traditional meal in nearby restaurants.

This is a beautiful mosque and very well preserved given it is nearly 1,000 years old. I definitely recommend you visit it even if it is tricky to find in the maze of lanes in the old market!

Though the sign outside says 'only Muslims', we were welcomed in when we expressed our desire to only look around; the mosque is quiet, exuding calm, and with some lovely construction including the minaret

Very beautiful, quiet space in the midst of the busy, hectic medina. The architecture is gorgeous, and it's quite stunning to find such a peaceful place in the middle of a bazaar.

the mosque has only one allowed entrance for tourists plus 5 dinars, excluding the MENA tourists, they don't pay. Well, I didnt But, 5 dinars, is quite expensive for 5 min view.
