Kairouan is the focal point of religious life in Tunisia and, as such, offers plenty of places of interests to the visitors. The Great Mosque is probably the most impressive mosque in the country and there are a number of zaouias (tombs of holy Muslim men) open to non muslims. Of all the medinas we saw in Tunisia, Kairouan's impressed me most. It's a fantastic place to wander and there's much to see and plenty to buy!
