Good to see although didn't go inside. Good for the photo album. Right in the centre of Monastir so easy to access. Had to dodge the street sellers.

There is not a lot of tourist attractions in Monastir so this is well worth a visit. It is beautiful from the outside. Not much history info on the building which would have been nice.

This is the resting place of the first president of Tunisia. We probably wouldn't have went here if it wasn't included in our day trip, but glad we went. It really shows the respect they have for their president, given the luxurious resting place they have for him and his family.

One of the most lovely and peaceful places iv be to in Tunisia free to get in but if you get court by a "tour guide" it will cost you money you don't need to spend as they only show you what you can see walkin round on your own well worth a visit the building is beautiful

The entrance to the mausoleum is free but there is a guide and he will want to tip. You can not take a guide, it is not mandatory. At the entrance to the mausoleum you can make a picture with a camel.
