It’s interesting to visit as the building is very grand from the outside. Inside there is a room with a couple of personal artefacts of Bourguiba and two rooms with the tombs of his family members. The main room has his tomb. It’s free to enter.

You can complete the visit in three quarters of an hour with a space for taking pictures. One of the most expensive buildings in Tunis. Built as a sign of respect for President Habib Burghiba, who ensured equality for women and many other changes in the country.

Like someone else said, a 15-minute walk around max if you’re a foreigner like me. There is no explanation whatsoever of anything in English but the nice guard at the front speaks some English and gave some good colour. Beautiful architecture regardless. Free to enter.

Make sure to bring some treats for the lovely stray dog outside. And kitties too.

The mausoleum of Bourghiba is very beautiful. The mausoleum itself is surrounded by a large park covered with concrete towers. The mausoleum itself is guarded by an honor guard, reminiscent of the guards of Bukinham Palace in London.

This is a mausoleum that was built during the lifetime of Habib Bourguiba, the 1st President of Tunisia. He is the man who spread free education to all, built Hospitals and schools, dams and roads.... All members of his family (brothers and ssters) are buried at the same mausoleum. This is a place that was revisited after the 2011 revolution to give a better and more realistic view of the achievements of Late Habib Bourguiba.

This place is so stunning. We got a taxi to Monastir from our hotel to have a look around the bazaars and explore the marina.
We actually stumbled across this but used our pocket guide to read up more about it. There was no entrance fee and hardly anyone there. The grounds were so well kept and inside was beautiful also with a HUGE chandelier above the presidents tomb.
SO worth a visit. It won't take up much of your day and you'll get some amazing photos.

This Mausoleum is absolutely beautiful, both on the inside and the outside. The outside is majestic, and the inside is well arraged with Bourghiba's desk, photographs, clothing, and of couse, his tomb. Well worth the visit, a must see if you go to Monastir!
