We had a great night of music in the castle, but the act were over 1 hour late on stage. I nearly gave up and got a taxi back to the hotel. But they were good when they came on.

Small museum, but wonderful place to explore the old architecture and history. Inexpensive. Perfect view from the tower.

The Ribat is impressive. The view from the top of the tower is worth the slick stairwell. Reading about the history (some of it was in English) made this monument even more interesting.

Not much of a commercial town with busy streets and crowded Medina. Actually Medina is almost nonexistent. It was intentionally reduced to enhance the city attraction towards its religious and culture. Monastir has retained a certain peace and a more genuine feel. Monastir’s charms are...More
