The Medina of Sousse is surrounded by thick, 8-metre-high fortified walls which were built over the remnants of the original Byzantine fortifications.
Inside the Medina is a wealth of sights to discover, among which is the Great Mosque. The Ribat (fortress) from the 8th century offers a breathtaking view of the city.
Even for those who do not like historical landmarks, just strolling around the colourful streets of the Medina makes for a great visit.
