Attractions near the Hotel Saadia
Visit the mausoleum of Monastir
Sitting on the edge of Monastir Cemetery, the Habib Bourguiba Mausoleum is the resting place of Habib Bourguiba, Tunisia’s first president after independence from France. Built in 1963, this opulent burial mosque is distinguished by its impressive golden dome and 25-metre marble minarets that stand guard on either side of the entrance. Inside the tomb you’ll find monuments to the Bourguiba family members, and outside a stairway leads to the top of the mausoleum where you’re greeted with wonderful views of the surrounding area.
The cemetery just beside the mausoleum is a worth a visit, too. White washed stone surrounds each burial space and stretches out across the flat, hot land. Here you’ll find the tomb of the 12th century holy Sidi el Maziri in a white-domed burial chamber, sitting above all the other graves.
Explore the Medina
No matter where you go in the world, a market will surely provide a great way to discover the local culture and while away a few hours. In Monastir, the Medina is the perfect spot to see what real life is like in Tunisia, while grabbing a few bargains along the way.
It may not be a very big place, but it is charming. The old back alleys are covered with wares that line the narrow cobbled streets. Friendly stallholders will try to entice you to buy, with bright smiles and happy faces. Bring your camera and enjoy the smells, sights and sounds of North African life.
