The information is all in French and Arabic but I could understand the pictures. There's not that much to see but the view from the top is worth the entrance fee. Across the town and the beach - it's beautiful!

Very good but only because there is nothing else to see around. And give you opportunity to burn some calories walking up and down the stairs.

If you want to shop, this is the place to do it, but hope you don't mind being bothered by the shop owners as if you stop to look, they try and get you in, but you can always barter with them, as you will virtually always get it for 1/2 the price or less than what they initially asked... More

Amazing views across the sea, beach and town from the top of this. Probably great if you are into the archaeology and history but not much to see inside otherwise.

Fantastic place to start your visit of the medina : the great view of th city itself and the sea really gives an idea of its situation. The site is globally well maintained, however, there is little explanation to be had about it apart from several signs in a small room. If you're looking for bits about the city, these... More

700 year old heritage, i went on friday for Jummah prayers inside Kasbah mosque but could not wait around due to little man growing impatient,nice bit of tunisian culture,,,stall traders can be intimidating, but i've seen worse, just smile and ignore them..walk pass unless they make an offer that you cannot refuse!!

this is what is left of the wall and fort of hamamet, there is nothing much about it, you can climb a couple of stairs to reach the top area where you can get a good view of the medina and the sea but nothing more

There was a good view from the ramparts but not much else. It was also expensive in comparison to anything else.

I'd been to Turkey quite a few times previously so I thought I knew what to expect when visiting the Kasbah at Hammanet. Wow! how wrong was I!!!! Nothing but being hassled by shop keepers the whole time I was there they try every trick in the book, I suspect some ladies could feel really intimidated by this and must... More

Fantastic medieval Arab stronghold once the local HQ of the French Foreign Legion. Walk around it form the outside and inside to get a real feel for it. Unfortunately the vendors of the medina, which it now houses obstruct access to some of it.
