Kasbah of Sousse, Sousse

#4 of 8 in Historic Sites in Sousse Governorate
Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Erected on what was once a Byzantine fortress, Kasbah of Sousse was built in 859 CE and is one of Sousse's most notable monuments. During its prime, the site maintained a military role; its Khalef el Fata tower was used as a lighthouse and still stands at 30 m (98 ft) as one of the oldest towers in North Africa. For expansive views of the medina, visit the uppermost deck, 50 m (164 ft) above the platform. Walk through the narrow streets in the adjoining area to feel like you're back in medieval times. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Sousse trip simple and quick.
