Very old (8th century) and beautiful mosque in Tunis Medina. Unfortunatelly the tourist cannot enter inside the mosque, but only could take a look from the interior court.

Non Muslims cannot visit this but you can have a look around the outside and take plenty of photographs. It is a lovely building. You will get to see this if you go on a tour of the medina.

The Zitouna Mosque within the Medina of Tunis is quite interesting, as it seems every single one of the small, winding roads will take you to it one way or the other. The building in itself is huge, though not spectacular or fancy in any...More
