We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Kasbah square. Here we saw the beautiful Mosque, tomb of a martyr who fought to defend his country against the Spanish occupation, intricately decorated street walls and doors. As we began photo shooting at the square, we asked a passerby, to take our picture. She gladly obliged and took some nice pictures. After... More

Great place to visit if you want to walk around and people watch, but I wasn't interested in that the day I went and it was extremely hot so I didn't like it that much but my partner did. Really well kept place, very busy and clean. You can definitely do without if you're short on time. It's close to... More

This is a central location for coming and going from the medina. There are some gardens, but it's basically an area with the government building and some great possibilities for people watching, although I would prefer people watching on Avenue de France.

This is a lovely area. I was a little nervous about visiting it having since the Kasbah in Algiers but this place is extremely well kept, clean and lovely to visit (with plenty of security too!)

Great place to sit and have a coffee or tea and just watch life walk by. Great central location at the entrance to the Medina. Large plaza with a number outdoor sitting locations. Great place to catch your breath!

The merchants insist you buy from them. They follow you with their wares especially jewelry of gold and silver.

Nothing to see, move along please....fairly nondescript although trying not to walk too close to the razor sharp barb wire next to the government buildings was interesting enough

This is at one edge of the medina. It was filthy, as was most of Tunis. Litter everywhere. The whole area was surrounded by police and soldiers, which only added to a run down, bleak feel. Soak up the history of the recent demonstrations/ revolution but otherwise go back to the medina.

A friend and I visited Kasbah square several times on our ways to other places. This area seems to be the hangout spot for many people. Definitely something to see if you are in the area and want to be around the locals -- but probably would not go out of my way to visit.
