This beautiful and historic town on Tunisia’s east coast is well preserved in parts, carefully restored in others. The old quarter is dominated by the rebuilt Central Mosque.

The old town in Mahdia is not very big but it is very nice. There are the typical narrow streets and blue windows and doors. There is a great tree covered plaza where you can get food and coffee. It is a nice quiet place.
