This old Byzantine foundation was a fortress of the Almoravid era. It is an impressive monument with large prayer hall and many smaller rooms for the Islamic worriors. It is the oldest monument in Sousse built in the 8th century.

I visited this ribat in Sousse after I checked out the ribat in Monastir. The thing is that, the one in Sousse is smaller and doesn't offer as spectacular view over the surroundings as the ribat in Monastir. My best advise for you if you...More

If you go up the rooftop of Soula shopping Center where it stands near the Place Farhat Hacchodaira. You can get the fine view of “Sousse” including “Ribat for free of charge.

It's certainly an imposing building in an impressive location and relatively cheap to enter, you pay extra to take photies. Inside, you have a series of rooms on different levels, some with artefacts in. Not stunning, but worth a visit.

This gives you a taste for the history of this land , a small fun attraction only half an hour and you need a good head for heights if you go up the main tower, incredible value at 7 dinars

Right next to the Grande Mosque is the Ribat. This is a very interesting place to walk around. Architecture is amazing. The views from the top of the Ribat are amazing. Well worth a visit. Price about £3 to enter.
