- A small medina compared to the medina in Tunisia.
Untidy, maybe a bit repulsive for Europeans.
Merchants aggressive in calling to enter the store.
To my surprise, there were few visitors in the middle of the summer season.Written 20 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Very Relaxing in there Not very big but dangerous, you can go right to the top my 13 year old ran up before me and I nearly died of shock, the wall was below my knee and so narrow, no limit on how many can go up and down and you have no way of knowing . So as we were right at the top three tall men came pushing past, down the narrow stairs, not there fault no lights etc.. my son by this time was at the top wityh no railings one topple and you would fall to your death.. I was panicked
But it was beautiful, my daughter wasn't impressed but she's not into culture, while my other daughter who loves history thought it was great. If your in Sousse visit defo as its cheap and beautiful if your not in Sousse I wouldn't travel there to see it, I think there may be better historical places to go and see
They are very professional and calm- the staff, its very clean and you will not get hassled at all,... as you would outside the Ribat. Its right next to the I love Monastir big sign on the harbour. So you could make a day of it and go out on a boat trip too, do not pay for excursions we went on the bus and we were fine as a familyWritten 31 May 2022
- Since my fiancé knows I like arts like sculptures in different subjects and paintings. he brought me to this place... outside of the museum gave me a feeling of excitement.... Inside was definitely a breathtaking experience... all the way from the Philippines and I can see these arts in different concepts and mediums were mind opening...Written 2 August 2020
Amazing mousqe they built

- I ised to visit this place daily as i was studing in Sousse University .I love it full of life and history in the old buildings and shops arround .a walk arround could discharge all the negative vibes.Written 2 September 2020
- It is good for a great picture opp, and it is good to see, it is in the centre and the surrounding area is also really niceWritten 23 September 2019
- We only paid 2 dinar per person entry fee and really enjoyed our visit. The clothing in the displays is magnificent and shows the life in Tunisia at its hight. The building itself also is superb and I would like to find out more about it.Written 19 October 2019
- At Medinat Alzahra Parc it is a setup that will bring you close to the Tunisian culture and give you a deeper understanding of what is Tunisia all about.
So prepare for the following :
- pending on where you are stationed near Sousse you will have a bus trip of about 30 -40 minutes (even more pending on distance and traffic to Medinat ....).
- upon arrival you will go through a souvenir shop - that will be open upon your departure.
- you get out into a big courtyard where you will encounter the Tunisian country life - with camels, goats and sheep, homemade flatbread with harissa and olive oil. Great perspective for those who are interested in this kind of cultural immersion.
- after you pass this area you get near a stage - there you will have a short - 20-30 minutes show of singing, dancing - dancing with some heavy potery held in equilibrium on their heads, horse riding with some acrobatics.
- after this you get into the restaurant area - there the food will be served - Brik a starter with some salad - I was enjoying that. After you get some Couscous soup - spicy and fresh (is not all that you can eat so the portions might not be equally satisfying.), than couscous with chicken and sheep sausages - overall decent food - not the best not the worst.
During your dinner there will be a show on the stage of the restaurant that is sort of a reproduction of a Tunisian wedding - still I doubt that is genuine, let's say is a reinterpretation of the wedding - the show ain't bad that's for sure and it is for the length of your dinner.
- the theatrical show - it is advertised as a laser show - it a is a lighting and theater show -with some lasers at certain points - still it is a very good show and the show is telling you the story of Tunisia from the ancient ages to the modern days.
Tell you how 6 nations have shaped the history of Magreb and Tunisia: berber, punic, roman, arabic, turk and french. All this cultural merging gave birth to the Tunisia we know today. You will have the story from the fall of mighty Carthage till the modern days. Lovely show and very interesting - and since you are sitting outside in an amphitheater guess what - you can smoke a cigarette if you want- and the great thing - the show is in 4 languages so everybody can understand what the story is telling. I really enjoyed it.
To sum it all up it was a great closure to our tunisian experience - I recommend you see it for yourself.Written 30 December 2019
- A great place to go for a relaxing walk, drink or a meal. You can find a plenty of boat and catamaran operators there as well as the supermarket selling alcohol (not every shop sells it in Tunisia). Many people will ask you to visit their local shops but they are always polite and most of them are very funny too.Written 29 September 2022
- Amazing! Relaxing! No pressure to buy or get more treatments. Very attentive, friendly and probably the best hammam I’ve ever had!Written 22 October 2022
- I personally think that this monument is very well done and is worth a look having seen this many times before but again this month. It has weathered well since it has been placed here but represents the history well.Written 1 July 2021
- It's a department store, but good value, excellent restaurant, and good toilets, if you do not like the aggressive shopping experience in the market this is a much better shopping experienceWritten 27 March 2019
