The Medina of Tunis

The Medina is the old city of Tunis, once surrounded by ramparts. Under the Almohads and Hafsides, during the twelfth up to the sixteenth century, Tunis was considered one of the most important and richest cities of the Islamic world. Some 700 monuments, including palaces, mosques, mausoleums, madrasas and fountains, testify to this remarkable past.
