The Medina of Tunis, heart of the Capital!

The Medina of Tunis is the historical heart of Tunis. Covering 270 hectares and rich in 12 centuries of history, it is characterised by a network of streets, alleys and dead-ends servicing houses with patios attached to each other.


Classified since 1979 on the list of the world heritage by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), the Medina of Tunis is also known by the richness of its monuments which are around 670 and also by the fact that it presents one of the rare testimonies of the Moslem urbanism: religious monuments (mosques, mesjeds, zaouïas), old medersas...

The project 'Promotion of Sustainable Tourism' is a joint action of the European Union in Tunisia initiated under the programme 'Tounes Wijhetouna' and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). It is implemented by the GIZ Tunisia, in partnership with the Ministry of Tourism and Handicrafts and it aims to give visibility to local actors and create a new cultural, tourist and economic dynamic in the Medina of Tunis.
