“Excellent experience”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

I visited this mosque a few times in sousse you are expected to pay and not have access to certain parts of the mosque. However I watched where the local women went and used the side door. Just cocker your arms and hair and try to blend in..... If questioned just say salem......
Wonderfull experience........

“could not access”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Only Muslims allowed access to Mosque, Can only view from the square which was very disappoint and an excuse to relieve one of four dinars.

“Must see”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

It was amazing to go to the mosque and pray inside it. I am a Muslim so didn't pay anything.
You will only like it if u r interested to see historical buildings. If u r looking for something special art and design, then u will be disappointed. This mosque holds historical importance and to b in there is what matters. People here say they can see it from ribat also but that doesn't mean u have even in there.
Women har to cover themselves, whether Muslim or non Muslim.
Non Muslims r allowed into the court yard, they can also peek into mosque to see how it is inside..
Again, if u are interested in history and love these things, then only u will be able to appreciate it, seeing it from ribat doesn't mean u have been there and being in there is what gives a special feeling :-)))

“Mosque without a minaret”
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.
