The Ribat of Monastir is very beautiful. It was very easy to park our car there, and from its tower, you have an excellent overview on the city and its surroundings.

I liked this fort very much. It was in remarkably good condition bearing in mind some parts were constructed over 1000 years ago. The entry cost is only 7 dinar. You get some great views from the tower. Well worth a visit.

We had a great night of music in the castle, but the act were over 1 hour late on stage. I nearly gave up and got a taxi back to the hotel. But they were good when they came on.

Small museum, but wonderful place to explore the old architecture and history. Inexpensive. Perfect view from the tower.
