Medina of Tunis, Tunis

3.4
#1 of 7 in Neighborhoods in Tunisia
Delve into the history of the nation as you tour Medina of Tunis, the town's World Heritage-listed historic quarter. Though originally founded in 698 CE, many of the walled quarter's attractions date back to the later Almohad and Hafsid periods, with a collection of 700 madrasas, mausoleums, palaces, mosques, and fountains protected as landmarks of global importance. The predominance of whitewashed buildings adds a glistening, romantic air to the medina, balanced by the rush of commercial activity and noise found in the traditional souks--labyrinthine markets selling all manner of local products and produce.
