Medina, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Tunisia, is a jewel in the crown of the country. It is a magical maze comprising of layers and layers of cultural integrity and a rich legacy of an ancient civilisation.
The old city of Tunis flourished and developed in the light of Islam at the end of the seventh century in 698, eighty four years after the Hejrat of Holy Prophet Muhammad, when the first stones of the Zitouna Mosque were laid. Over the centuries, the urban quarters and souks have sprouted around the mosque and those early settlers, newly converted Muslims, gathered around the mosque to worship and perform their ritual prayers.
