unfortunately it was shut due to a recent earthquake which was very disappointing for me as I am a big monty python fan and wanted to see where the life of Brian was filmed

This fort is a well renovated example of a Ribat, it has three levels and a tower. The tower is the highlight of the place, but be aware that it is a steep winding staircase to get to the top. When you are at the top, the hand rails and safety are limited so you will need a head for... More

This cost about £2.50 each ( 7 dinar) to get into and when you get to the top level its a lovely view you can go right to the top of the tower if you want.

Ticket price: 7 TND + 1 TND Photo ticket.. Just a few visitors, no crowd. Go inside the Medina beside the Soula Center and then go right. Easy to find it.

Fun to look around. Only takes about an hour max to take it all in. Would have been nice to have a little more history detailed about the place.

The ticket costs 7 dinars. Extra ticket for permission to photograph and use the camera costs 1 dinar. There is a lookout tower. Inside the tower is not enough space on the stairs. On top is a nice view of the city and garbage on the streets. In the morning we were there ourselves.

If you get the chance, climb the tower of the Ribat and have a look over the medina. The rest of the building has some good photo locations.

In my opinion, having visited other Ribats such as the one in Monastir, this Ribat is the best preserved and well worth a visit. If you can handle climbing quite a number of steep, stone stairs to the top of the tower, you will be rewarded by an outstanding view of Sousse and the Kasbah at the other end of... More

Brilliant piece of history. Great to go to the top of the tower where you could see all over the madina and out to sea.
