More than just a co-living facility, The Medina House is a gate to various rich local experiences that will forever mark you.
This experience allows visitors to explore the amazing UNESCO World Heritage Medina of Sousse. It is an opportunity to go through the narrow alleyways, smells of the souk and spice market, into a story that weaves together the 2nd oldest mosque in Africa, the archaeological museum of Sousse (one of the most intact collections of ancient mosaics in the world), and the Ribat, a thousand year old tower whose fire served as lighthouse and as signal.
The Medina Experience blends traditional architecture and hidden views that show the ancient city back-dropped by the Mediterranean Sea.
This experience is an opportunity to discover Tunisia’s rich history. Even though it is a relatively small country, Tunisia has many historical sites that attract a lot of tourists from around the worlds. It is a unique voyage in the time that takes you back over 2000 years ago when the amphitheater at El Jem was built. It is a major historical attraction in Tunisia and still considered one of the largest amphitheaters in the world. El Jem is a major Tunisian city that has a rich history. It was founded by the Carthaginians in 238 BC and it became an important Roman town after they conquered Tunisia in 146 BC. Another major city in Tunisia is Kairouan, as it is the first city to be founded in Tunisia, which was established by the Umayyads in 670. The city served as a religious and administrative center for the region. Mahdia is also a very important Tunisian city with a long history. It was founded by the Fatimids in 921 and it served as their capital until 1087. It has some beautiful mosques that date back centuries ago, as well as some impressive fortifications that have been preserved well over time.
