Popped into the mausoleum on a whistle-stop trip into Monastir. It is a pretty building with impressive architectural features and an amazing chandelier. Most of the information in the building is in Arabic or French, so it is worth taking a phone/tablet to find out more information if you like more historical facts.

The "guide" then kindly offered to take a family photo and then put his hand out to be paid. We incorporated this tip into the donation they ask for coming... More

This was part of our tour - the mausoleum as you approach it, is quite photogenic. You can go inside the tomb if you want to. There is no charge for this. We went last July but our child didn't want to go in - it was too hot a day and the kids tire quickly.

This is a must for those seeking the culture of Tunisia. Incredible to see. Kids might get bored though so be prepared. Also Avoid of say a firm NO to street sellers

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.
