“Mosque without a minaret”
Review of Grande Mosque

Grande Mosque
Ranked #3 of 26 things to do in Sousse
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed November 5, 2012

For me nothing special, having been and lived in Islamic countries but worth a quick look. Probably not worth paying the entrance fee if your not too keen. You can see inside the mosque from the Ribat and also from outside the doors.

Interesting to visit a place of historical importance in Sousse. However you are not allowed further than the courtyard if you are a non-Muslim, and also if you are female you have to cover up (you are provided with garments to cover yourself and head).

You are given robes to put on before you go in. Take a guide or someone who knows about the mosque to get the best from your visit.
