Fantastic views from the very top where you can see the real Tunisia, away from the hotels, and get a feel of what life was like back in time.

It's not worth to visit, all they sell there can be bought better and cheaper in the big malls. There are too many scam artists and most shopkeepers are rude.

Are you on the move in Tunisia so please stop by here. You should visit the Souk too. Very old and venerable. Buying and selling as it has been going on for Hundreds of years.

Nice kasbah in the medina but they do look the same once you have seen one. It is close to the Soula Shopping Centre, which is basically a department store and a gateway entrance to the medina/souks

The architecture was great and the area around the Kasbah was very atmospheric. If you want to get back down to the Soula shopping centre (where there are lots of taxis for hire) go down through the streets of the Medina rather than the main road - the main road is dusty, dirty and a bit overwhelming with communal taxis...

Mystery, fascination, colours, myriad of aromas, sounds and sights, cobbles and copper, artists and craftsmen, fresh fruit juices and beautiful patisserie, perfume essences call for prayers
