Visit the monumental burial place of the father of Tunisian independence at Bourghiba Mausoleum. The mausoleum's construction began back in 1963, only to reach completion after president Habib Bourguiba's death in 2000. A long walkway leads up to the traditional building, consisting of three domes flanked by tall minarets. Inside the mausoleum, stop into the small museum that brings together some of the leader's personal belongings, including his desk, pens, glasses, and collection of private photographs.

The mausoleum is a beautiful building with a central golden dome, as well as two green domes located on either side of the main. The mosque is decorated with marble, stone carvings and ceramics. Habib Bourguiba mausoleum was built in 1963 for dumping the Bourguiba and his family.

  • It was great and we must visit this if you are in Tunisia to respect the country leader’s Tomb. Huge area with shops and garden to spent our evenings.
  • better visit this place to know the history of Monastir and its former president Bourguiba.
  • This is a fantastic place and well worth a visit! Whilst not huge you'll get to see the tomb where Tunisia's first president is laid. Some really expensive furniture too gives you a taste for how they lived. Free entry also!!!
