Named after the preaching style of its founder (under the ‘olive tree’), Zitouna Mosque is the largest mosque all over Tunis and is its most famous landmark. It reflects the religion of most Tunisians and has been a very powerful tourist attraction. An extensive library inside the mosque adds to the attractive interior. Though non Muslims are not allowed to enter, they can stroll in the garden around it and examine the fine architecture of the mosque and the 44m high minaret.
