Tunisia-3168 - Ribat of Sousse

PLEASE, no multi invitations, glitters or self promotion in your comments, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE for anyone to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks - NONE OF MY PICTURES ARE HDR.

 

The ribat at Sousse is both the oldest and most typical surviving example of the ribat typology as it existed in medieval North Africa. Ribats were typically simple in design and mostly unadorned, due to their principal function as a military fortification. The ribat was built in 821 AD.

 

Not enough time was available to go into the Ribat as we had to go to Monastir, next stop.
