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.

Really nice mosque with a beautiful courtyard. Close to the souks so easy to fit in on your trip to the souks.

As a non-Muslim I was not permitted into the prayer hall, but could only look at the courtyard behind a barrier.

There's not a great deal to see unless you're Muslim. Try finding a rooftop in the medina for a better view.

I have seen many mosques in islamic and non-islamic countries, this is not very exceptional, but if you are already in Tunis, reasonable to visit, as it is in the Madina area. There is an entrance fee of 5TD. If you are muslim you are allowed to visit praying area and pray of course
