Visit the monumental burial place of the father of Tunisian independence at Bourghiba Mausoleum. The mausoleum's construction began back in 1963, only to reach completion after president Habib Bourguiba's death in 2000. A long walkway leads up to the traditional building, consisting of three domes flanked by tall minarets. Inside the mausoleum, stop into the small museum that brings together some of the leader's personal belongings, including his desk, pens, glasses, and collection of private photographs. Put Bourghiba Mausoleum into our Monastir route builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

I found this building grand and beautiful. Tunisians have loved their 1st President Bourguiba and accept this huge expense despite their lifestyle. Today this mausoleum brings a wealth to the city because it is an essential monument to visit. It's free and I recommend it.
