Ribat, Sousse: 13 reviews and 45 photos
The Ribat at Sousse is one of a series of fortified monasteries built along the North African coast as a defence against the threat of invading Christians. It is built over two levels opening onto a courtyard bordered with arcaded porticos and impressively thick outer walls which are over 13m high. Climbing to the top of the 27m high watchtower gives a great view over the town but you?ll need a head for heights. The construction dates back to AD 821 though there have been two periods of reconstruction work since.
Entrance to the Ribat is 4 dinars and a photography permit is 1 dinar.
Directions: Enter the medina and it's straight ahead.
