The Kasbah square have witnessed important historical events way earlier than Hafsids. Their thumb print is present with the Abou Zakariah al Hafsi mosque. La Kasbah went through the Turk, Spanish, French and the current governments. In recent years the Arab spring has flourished here. The government in effect got so tired of protests that they built a metal fence... More

It is a beautiful square and have many monuments and building around it, but it needs to be cleaned specially from cigaret filters.

In these old city centers I've found it easy to be a little uncomfortable with the crowds, narrow lanes, and small shops, so a spot like Tunis' Kasbah Square offers a welcoming and roomy area to sit and relax while watching local social interaction and, if you're so inclined, taking advantage of chatting with local folks passing the time of...

Our shore excursion group stopped here briefly on February 1. It is a sterile, monumental, modern-looking square that features Tunis's sleek City Hall, which was built in 1998. One also finds a large memorial monument surrounded by many red Tunisian flags fluttering the breeze, along with graceful lack lanterns. I found these lamps much more interesting than the modern buildings.... More

Excellent place with fantastic view! very clean and huge area - you can visit during the day or night-time. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time at Kasbah Square. It is located very close to Mosque Al-Zitouna and Al-Madina Market. Some beautiful sculptures in the square. You must visit -once you are in Tunis! From our hotel- Golden Tulip Tunis, the square...

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Kasbah square. Here we saw the beautiful Mosque, tomb of a martyr who fought to defend his country against the Spanish occupation, intricately decorated street walls and doors. As we began photo shooting at the square, we asked a passerby, to take our picture. She gladly obliged and took some nice pictures. After... More

Great place to visit if you want to walk around and people watch, but I wasn't interested in that the day I went and it was extremely hot so I didn't like it that much but my partner did. Really well kept place, very busy and clean. You can definitely do without if you're short on time. It's close to... More

This is a central location for coming and going from the medina. There are some gardens, but it's basically an area with the government building and some great possibilities for people watching, although I would prefer people watching on Avenue de France.
