Kairouan was the Tunisia capital for five centuries was a place of outstanding learning center of diffusion of Arabo-Muslim civilization. Kairouan bears unique witness to the first centuries of this Islamic settlement in Tunisia with a thriving civilization, a new style of architectural and urban development that gives Tunisia a cultural aspect different than any other Mediterranean destination. The inscribed site of Al Qayrawan is a serial property that includes the medina (Old City) and its neighborhoods, the water reservation Basins of the Aghlabids Dynasty, and the Gates and markets, schools, and Sufi Zawiyas. The medina (54 ha) and its suburbs (20 ha) are an urban ensemble presenting all the components of a cultural amalgamation of North African Arab-Turkish town. Taking a culturally guided tour at Kairouan is like stepping into an ancient sophisticated world of arts and crafts with a zest for life.

The medina comprises juxtaposed dwellings divided into quarters separated by medieval blind alleys, narrow and winding streets; as in most of the North African cultural cities, a fortifying wall will serve to protect the city from intruders. Kairouan ramparts extend over more than three kilometers. The medina contains some remarkable monuments including the Great Mosque, an architectural masterpiece that served as a model for several other Maghreban spiritual and cultural centers. The Mosque of the Three Doors represents the most ancient existent sculpted facade of Muslim art. The Basins of the Aghlabids, an open-air reservoir formed by two communicating cisterns that date back to the 9th century, constitute one of the most beautiful hydraulic ensembles conceived to provide water to the town. Tunisia tours to remember forever. Sign up for this Tunisia trip, you will be enchanted.
