Kairouan is the most religious city of Tunisia-the pilgrimage to Mecca can be replaced with 4 (or 7 ) pilgrimages to Kairouan..
This city was at the crossroads of important caravan routes ( the name 'kairouan' means 'caravane' )
The legend says that a spring appeared in front of Oqba Ibn Nafi and the city became Sacred when he descovered a golden goblet that was lost years before in Mecca...
