The building is beautiful from the walk up to the gates to inside the Mausoleum. The most interesting part for me was the photos of Bourghiba with all the leaders of the Middle East including Anwar Sadat but it was those that have gone down in history as monsters like Sadam Hussein which was fascinating. Well worth a visit.

Nice building near the center of Monastir and near the harbour. Walk over the large square in front of the Mausoleum.

Me and my husband came here as part of a trip from a hotel, it is an absolutely lovely building and it has wonderful architecture. It is definitely worth a visit

It is free to visit the Mausoleum and it's well worth a trip to do so. There are guides who will show you round and explain about things. The chandelier above the tomb contains 365 crystals and as a treat, our guide turned the lights on so we could take a photo of it in its splendour. We gave our... More

So exquisite, we only had enough time to take pictures from outside though. Must check this out if you're in Tunisia

I think since this is a free attraction it would be remiss not to go whilst in Monastir. There is a very touching memorial to Bourghiba in the form of personal photos and possessions. The building and it's materials are noteworthy too for their beauty. The signage here is all in Arabic. There are your guides who will take you... More

Loved the history and all the magnificent marble and the fact that they had granite from Aberdeen on the floor the chandeliers

Worth a visit if in the area to see the impressive architecture of the mausoleum. We went as part of an organised trip through Thomson called A Tale of Three Cities. Our guide was good and gave us interesting facts and stories throughout, however I feel if we'd just gone on our own, we would have learned very little about... More

Tunisians value Bourghiba's memory very much and it is clearly seen in this mausoleum. I probably would not go from another town to see it, as I am not the biggest fan of historical objects, however if you are staying in Monastir it is a must to see. Entry is free of charge.

Everything about Bourghiba Mausoleum is Grand and Glam! Worth visiting! Architecturally excelling and fitting memorial. Marble has been used well and with great deal of thought given to the whole structure. Imposing minarets give a grand feel to the whole visit here. Entry is FREE! .
