Sousse medina

Meaning the 'domed retreat', this chevron-ribbed dome is unique in North Africa. Little information exists about the building which ostensibly dates back to the 11th century. It is located just off the perfumers' souk in the heart of the medina and today is a small museum featuring traditional Tunisian wedding preparations, costumes and customs.
