Souk Shopping

The best place to go is the souk in the old part of Monastir, open daily, just outside the Ribat’s walls along the boulevard all the way to the cliff top. Here you will find many shops and artisans selling a large selection of carpets, ceramics, silver jewellery, brass and copper, leather work, wall hangings, antiques and fun stuff.


If you like haggling, you will enjoy shopping in Monastir! Start by cutting the offer in half, and then work your way up to a compromise if you are really interested. If you prefer fixed prices at the controlled handicrafts shops, try just outside the Medina or if you have time the large Soula Centre in Sousse.
