“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

It was amazing to go to the mosque and pray inside it. I am a Muslim so didn't pay anything.
You will only like it if u r interested to see historical buildings. If u r looking for something special art and design, then u will be disappointed. This mosque holds historical importance and to b in there is what matters. People here say they can see it from ribat also but that doesn't mean u have even in there.
Women har to cover themselves, whether Muslim or non Muslim.
Non Muslims r allowed into the court yard, they can also peek into mosque to see how it is inside..
Again, if u are interested in history and love these things, then only u will be able to appreciate it, seeing it from ribat doesn't mean u have been there and being in there is what gives a special feeling :-)))

“Mosque without a minaret”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

For me nothing special, having been and lived in Islamic countries but worth a quick look. Probably not worth paying the entrance fee if your not too keen. You can see inside the mosque from the Ribat and also from outside the doors.

“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Interesting to visit a place of historical importance in Sousse. However you are not allowed further than the courtyard if you are a non-Muslim, and also if you are female you have to cover up (you are provided with garments to cover yourself and head).

“Visit to Sousse”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

You are given robes to put on before you go in. Take a guide or someone who knows about the mosque to get the best from your visit.
