The Ribat of Harthema

information about tunisia  Monastir - Tunisia, Monastir

The Ribat of Harthema, right at the seafront, stood out from the crowd of other attractions of Monastir. Its state of preservation was remarkable. From the distance, the fortress looked almost new. And up close one could spot that parts of the structure might have been restored, otherwise the clean-up work, which could have been done instead was extremely successful. On good, sunny weather, the light brown, thick walls stood austere and solid. Almost mesmerising! And the little park across the street, with benches and palmtrees could not be positioned any better at all. It gave great perspective or a foreground for interesting photo compositions.

The Ribat was the first in the country to allow female students and professors. Its constructions must have started in the 8th century, but as the complex had been remodelled over the centuries, it was hard to establish its exact age. Entry to the Ribat (museum of ancient Islamic writing, fabric and pottery) was TND3 plus TND1 for camera.
