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.

this is a fun little trek into and up to the Ribat. It offers a great view of the medina and of the sea. I would definitely recommend this place for a visit.

Loved it but monastir can be very pushy in trying to get you in the shops, just beaware and say no and walk away

This is a small fort in the old town, next to the mosque. If you like forts, you'll love it. If not, you'll love the view from the tower. If you don't care for any of this, don't come here. I rather liked it, both the view and the architecture and the fact that it is in excellent shape. But... More
