It was founded by the Phoenicians who called it
Hadrumet and even before Carthage was founded Sousse
was a major port
and an independent city until the 6th century BC, where it came under the influence of Carthage, Rome, Constantinople and many other later civilizations.
Today the Arab medina remains closed within its
ancient walls as if to protect the treasures
accumulated over the centuries, especially during the
9th, a prosperous one for all North Africa. Of
the many centers of interest that Sousse has to
offer, the Medina (the old town) is by far the most
important and is home to monuments
of major importance: the Muslim “Manar” and “Ribat” (9th century fortification towers), the Great Mosque of 850 AD and the
containing 240 burial galleries which are better preserved than those in Rome!
