Is a maze of streets, alleys, squares, corners, doors and windows full of life which attract tourists. Feeling part of it all is easy - just take a stroll through its streets, drink tea at one of its cafes or talk to the locals. Let yourself be taken in by the medina and get lost in it.
There are three areas within the medina: Andalusian, Jewish and Berber.
It is almost completely surrounded by walls and its highest spot is dominated by its alcazaba, which once served as the Spanish barracks.
The heart of the Medina is Souk el Houts, dominated by the alcazaba of al-Mandari, and an interesting place where many women sell typical aprons from the city.
Another place you should visit is the Feddan Square, a beautiful square where you'll find the Royal Palace. Next to the palace are the zaouias of Sidi Abdellah el Hach and Sidi Ali Ben Aisa. This square has cafes, shops and provides access to the Jewish quarter.
The Jewish quarter is well worth a visit for its splendid houses and the ancient Queen Victoria Theatre.
A pedestrian street full of night life. There are many cafes, call shops, restaurants, tourist shops and street vendors. At the end of the street there are used books vendors, who sell a wide variety of books in many languages. It then continues on up to the Royal Palace.
This street belongs to the Spanish district, which was built during the protectorate to add to the medina.
