: The Medina of Tunis is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and renowned tourist attraction in Tunisia. Considered one of the greatest and wealthiest cities in the Arab world during the dynasties of the Almohads and Hafsids (12th to 16th century), the Medina of Tunis is a testimony of Tunisia’s rich past.
This site displays all the features of an Arabo-Muslim city with its exquisite central medina from the 8th century and suburbs to the North and South from the 13th century. The area comprises some 700 historic monuments from which we find the Zitouna Mosque (oldest mosque in Tunis), the Kasbah Mosque (13th century), the Youssef Dey Mosque (17th century), beautifully decorated gates, famous marketplaces (souqs), the Dar el-Bey palace and more.
Welcome to Tunisia and its many wonders: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0opocb3UHgY
