Mahdia Things to Do: 25 reviews and 80 photos

On the southern coast of the peninsula is the remains of the Old Harbour which was used by the Fatimid's. It measures 126m (138yds) by 57m (62yds) and may have been used by the Romans. The narrow entrance channel, 15m (16yds) long, was protected by two Fatimid watch-towers which were incorporated in the town walls and were later linked by an arch.
