Monastir offers miles of long white beaches and a well-equipped tourist complex. Founded in 796, the Ribat is a fortified citadel surrounded by different levels of ramparts. Once you get to the nador, the monks' watch tower, you will find a superb view of the Mediterranean. Also pay a visit to the Bourguiba mosque which opens up to a very lovely marble court. Finish your tour of Monastir with a walk on the sea front along the road of the Falaise (cliff).
